Here are some things you need to know to successfully transfer WhatsApp Android to iPhone.

Why is Android to iOS WhatsApp data transfer difficult?

The main reason why it is very difficult to transfer Android WhatsApp conversation records to iPhone is that the operating systems used by Android and iPhone are quite different.

Android backup is stored in Google Cloud Drive, and iPhone backup is stored in iCloud, which makes it not straightforward to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone.

Is there an official way to transfer WhatsApp Android to iPhone?

According to the official WhatsApp answer, if the user switches to a different type of mobile phone, that is, when switching between Android and iOS systems, the account information will be retained, but you will not be able to transfer the conversation history.

However, credible sources have revealed that WhatsApp is officially developing and testing the transfer service between iPhone and Android devices. However, this official report did not give a specific feature release time, so if you expect the official WhatsApp Android to iPhone service to be provided, you will still need to wait.

Is there a free method to transfer WhatsApp Android to iPhone?

I have studied various free methods of WhatsApp Android to iPhone proffered on the Internet, but after analysis, none of them can directly transfer WhatsApp data backed up in Google Cloud to iCloud for free.

Note: If you see some rumours that you can use Google Cloud Drive/iCloud/iTunes to transfer Android WhatsApp to iOS, or use the Move to iOS app specially developed for Apple users to transfer Android WhatsApp to iPhone, please skip it. Because those methods are not feasible.

How to transfer WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone

The only free way to transfer WhatsApp chats from Android to iPhone is through the WhatsApp conversation export transfer function. But this is not a real transfer, because you can only export the WhatsApp chat history on the Android phone one by one, and then send it to the iOS device as an attachment.

So if you want to save time, it is recommended to choose a professional WhatsApp transfer tool.

Although it is not completely free, compared to looking for paid professionals, using such tools by yourself can save time and ensure that data is not leaked.

Below are two practical and effective methods to help you transfer Android WhatsApp conversation records to iOS.

Use WhatsApp moving tool to transfer WhatsApp Android to iPhone

The WhatsApp transfer tool, iMyFone iTransor for WhatsApp, allows you to easily transfer Android WhatsApp chat history and data to iPhone with just a few clicks. After the transfer is complete, you can see the complete chat history on your iPhone’s WhatsApp.

  2. The program will detect two devices and display them on the program interface.

Use Email to Transfer data from WhatsApp Android to iPhone for Free

If you want to get a free method of transferring data from WhatsApp Android to iPhone, it is worth trying to send WhatsApp to yourself by email after exporting! Then you can browse the attachments of the chat history on the iPhone.

Please note that this method can only open a single dialog box for export and transfer, so it will be very time-consuming.

Here is how to transfer chats of WhatsApp Android to iPhone for free using email:

  1. Open WhatsApp on your Android device, then select the WhatsApp conversation you want to export, and click on the dialog with this contact.
  2. Tap Settings> More> Export dialog on the three dots in the upper right corner.
  3. Choose whether to attach media files, with “Multimedia Attachment Export” or “No Multimedia”. No multimedia means to export a txt file in plain text.
  4. After clicking, choose to send the attachment file to your email, and then open the email on your iPhone to view it.


  • This is the official WhatsApp Android to iPhone free method.


  • It is not possible to transfer all WhatsApp chat history at once.
  • The message cannot be transferred to the WhatsApp account. Instead, the format of “txt file” and “media file” will be attached to the email.
  • This method limits the chat history that can be transferred. If media files are included, you can only mail 10,000 messages in the form of attachment files. If no media files are transferred, you can export no more than 40,000 messages .


It can be seen that there are many limitations and inconveniences in transferring WhatsApp from Android to iPhone using email.

Therefore, we recommend that you use the WhatsApp transfer tool.

If you plan to change your phone number, you also need to change it before the WhatsApp transfer. In order to successfully transfer account content.
