You can switch to iOS if necessary, and all your messages and chats from the most extensive cross-platform messaging application will be transferred to iOS. iPhone owners can access this feature by following the steps below:

  • Open your WhatsApp account from the device
  • Visit the WhatsApp Settings for iOS
  • Click on the Chats
  • It means that Move chats to Android have been enabled on your device

You will need good battery life and ensure that both your devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network for the transfer process. After the app has been updated, you can access an additional option in Apple’s “Move To iOS” app. The process is straightforward.

To migrate your chat history from an Android phone to the “Switch Android” app, you will need to use the “Switch Android” app. You can also follow the steps. However, the application might not be available for Samsung Mobile Phones initially, according to Will Cathcart, the WhatsApp Head.


As confirmed by Mark Zuckerberg via his official Facebook page, you will soon be able to transfer your entire chat, video, and voice message history between an existing Android phone and an iPhone. Sadly, according to the official WhatsApp support pages, you will not be able to transfer call history or display names between Android and iOS devices.

Zuckerberg confirmed that end-to-end encryption is maintained even after you migrate your content from one device. However, there are limitations. You must use Move to iOS on your Android phone to initiate WhatsApp transfers. You must also have Android 5.0 Lollipop installed on your Android phone. iOS 15.5 is required to allow you to transfer to your iPhone.

There are also app version restrictions. WhatsApp for Android version 2.22.10.70 and WhatsApp for iOS version 2.22.07.74 is required for transfer to work. You must also have a new iPhone or a factory reset. Your iPhone cannot pair with the Move to iOS app.

WhatsApp and Zuckerberg did not provide a timeline for the transfer/migration feature rollout. It is expected to be made available in the next few weeks. You can download the official support pages to see how you can try it yourself.
