How to Transfer WhatsApp Chats from Android to iPhone

Requirements to Move WhatsApp Messages from Android to iOS

There are a number of things that you need to remember before you transfer your WhatsApp chats from your Android phone to an iPhone.

An Android phone running Android 5 Lollipop and above

iPhone running iOS 15.5 or later.

A compatible WhatsApp version, i.e. iOS version or above and Android version or above

Download the “Move to iOS” app (Free) from the Play Store on your Android phone.

Log in to WhatsApp on iPhone using the same phone number as Android. You cannot change the phone number while moving data.

Since the transfer process can take a long time, especially if your WhatsApp backup is huge, you should keep both your Android phone and iPhone plugged into a power source.

Moreover, you either need to connect both your devices to the same wireless network, or your Android phone will be connected to the iPhone’s hotspot for data transfer.
