How To Transfer Your WhatsApp Data From iPhone To Android
You need an iPhone running iOS 15.5 or later and an Android smartphone with at least Android 5.0, according to the WhatsApp FAQ. Additionally, your Android device must have WhatsApp version 126.96.36.199 or higher installed, and your iOS device must have WhatsApp version 188.8.131.52 or higher installed.
You’ll need an iPhone that is either brand-new or has undergone a factory reset, as well as an Android phone with the Move to iOS software downloaded.
Finally, you must use the same phone number on your new iOS device, have both devices linked to the same Wi-Fi network, and have a power source.
There are more steps involved, which you can view on the previously cited FAQ page. In general, though, take your time, follow the instructions, and your data should eventually be transferred to your new iPhone. Due to WhatsApp’s inability to detect what kind of data is being migrated, the information exchanged remains secure and confidential. You can return to your Android phone and remove the data after performing one last check of your information on the iOS device. Until it is removed, the data will stay on the Android smartphone. The only items you won’t be able to transfer, as a final little restriction, are your call history and display name, both of which are minimal costs to be able to transfer an account.
