While switching from Android to iOS or vice versa, it becomes necessary to have the data transferred from one device to another. The data can be images, videos, contacts, or many more. These all can be transferred easily but what if you want WhatsApp messages to be transferred? I guess it is a little bit tricky because, unlike Telegram which backs up the data on the cloud and as a result of which it becomes easy to migrate it from one device to another, WhatsApp does not follow the same path as it backs up the data to Google Drive (in case of Android) and to iCloud (in case of iOS). So, due to this dissimilarity of the platforms, it becomes difficult to migrate the backup. Hence, it is tricky to transfer WhatsApp messages from Android to iPhone using Google Drive.
The latest Android 12 is known to provide migration of WhatsApp messages between all Galaxy, Pixel, and iPhones. But what if you do not have any of these, in this case, you may follow the solutions provided below in the forthcoming passages. Following them, you can easily transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone.
