In this article, we will go through a step-by-step guide on how you can easily transfer chat history from an Android device to an iPhone.

Steps to transfer chat history from Android to iPhone

  • Download and install the Move to iOS app from the Google Play Store
  • Start the ‌iPhone‌ setup process of your new (or factory reset) ‌iPhone‌.
  • Select Move Data from Android when the Apps & Data setup screen appears.
  • Launch the “Move to iOS” app on your Android device and follow the onscreen instructions.
  • Tap Continue on your iPhone when you see the Move from Android screen, then wait for a ten-digit or six-digit code to appear.
  • On your Android phone, enter the code, select WhatsApp from the Transfer Data screen, and then tap Start.
  • Wait for your WhatsApp data and history to be ready for migration. When the process is finished, your Android device will be signed out of WhatsApp.
  • Once your iPhone is fully configured, download WhatsApp from the App Store and sign in with the same phone number.

The transfer process only works on new or factory reset iPhones and makes use of Apple’s existing “Move to iOS” app for Android (which already helps move contacts, calendar entries, SMS messages, and more) and only works on devices running on Android 5.0 or later and iPhones running iOS 15.5 or later.
