How to Transfer Your WhatsApp Between Android and iPhone

This is why we’ve created a guide on how you can transfer data between iOS, Android & Windows Phone in the easiest way possible. Even someone who has limited knowledge of tech should be able to complete the Android to iPhone transfer easily.

Why Not Just Install a New WhatsApp?

Having a new smartphone can be an exciting thing, but then you realize that you’ll need to transfer all your data, including photos, videos and WhatsApp history to the mobile. This can be frustrating and lead to a lot of lost files, some of them important ones.

Apple and Google try to make the transfer easy for their users by offering an automated way to transfer your most important files and data. But keep in mind that not all of your data will be transferred, especially WhatsApp and other third-party apps and services.

Enter MobileTrans, a WhatsApp transfer software that turns a tedious process into a one-click affair. Using the app for Android to iPhone WhatsApp transfers has become much faster, thanks to the intuitive interface and easy-to-understand functions.

Backup to Computer

Most of us worry about losing data on the phone, and for this reason we want to copy them into a computer as backup. But doing this takes time and you’ll have to do it manually, i.e., copying one folder to another.

With MobileTrans, backing up to a computer or laptop becomes much simpler. All your media can be transferred to an internal or external hard drive, thereby freeing up crucial storage space on your phone.

What’s great about the software is that you can view the media and read WhatsApp messages on your computer without needing to put them back on your smartphone.

Multiple Device Transfer

All your WhatsApp data, including attachments, videos, photos, messages and stickers will be completely and safely transferred in as little time as possible.

You’ll now have the ability to transfer WhatsApp Android to iPhone and from iPhone to Android. MobileTrans supports transfer of a wide range of Apple devices, including the iPad, iPod Touch and the iPhone.

It’s worthy to note that MobileTrans also works on other popular chat apps such as WeChat, Viber, LINE and Kik, among others.

Restore WhatsApp to Android or iPhone

MobileTrans will move WhatsApp from Android to iPhone and even restore it whenever you need to.

Restoring to an old or new smartphone will have several uses. Maybe you deleted important information, e.g., a contact, video or sticker that you want to get back, or want to make sure your chats are saved and up-to-date.

With MobileTrans, all you have to do is click a button and your previous WhatsApp data will be restored to your phone.
