Are you planning to switch from an Android device to an iPhone? One of the most important things you might be concerned about is transferring your WhatsApp data.
In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of transferring WhatsApp from Android to iPhone using Google Drive. So let’s get started!
Step 1: Backup your WhatsApp Data on Android
The first step is to create a backup of your WhatsApp data on your Android device. Follow these steps:
- Open WhatsApp on your Android device.
- Tap on the three-dot menu in the top-right corner and go to Settings.
- Select ‘Chats’ and then choose ‘Chat backup’.
- Tap on ‘Back up’ to begin the backup process.
Step 2: Transfer WhatsApp Backup from Android to iPhone
Now that you have created a backup of your WhatsApp data, it’s time to transfer it to your new iPhone. Follow these steps:
- On your Android device, connect it to a computer using a USB cable.
- Navigate to the ‘WhatsApp’ folder in the internal storage or SD card of your Android device.
- Note: If you don’t see this folder, make sure you have enabled the option to show hidden files and folders in your computer’s settings.
- Note: If you are using macOS Catalina or later, you won’t find an ‘Apps’ tab. Instead, look for ‘File Sharing’ in the sidebar of Finder.
- Note: Make sure you drop it in the correct location to avoid any issues with data transfer.
Step 3: Install WhatsApp on iPhone and Restore Data
You’re almost there! Now, let’s install WhatsApp on your iPhone and restore your data:
- Eject and disconnect your iPhone from the computer once you have successfully copied the WhatsApp folder.
- Open App Store on your iPhone and search for WhatsApp.
- Note: Make sure you download and install the official WhatsApp application.
- Note: This process might take some time depending on the size of your backup file.
Transferring WhatsApp from Android to iPhone was never this easy! By following these simple steps, you can seamlessly move your WhatsApp data and continue your conversations on your new iPhone.
