WhatsApp Android to iOS Chat Data Transfer Details

WhatsApp is now allowing users on any Samsung smartphone that is running version 3.7.22.1 or higher of the Samsung SmartSwitch app along with Android 10 to use the WhatsApp Chat Transfer feature. WhatsApp will soon be rolling out this feature for other Android smartphones as well.

At the same time, iPhone users need to ensure that their smartphone is running the WhatsApp version 2.21.160.17 or higher to use this feature. But note that this is not a cloud data transfer since Android devices back up the data in Google Drive while the iOS devices back it up in iCloud.

Step 1 - Switch on the Samsung device and connect through the cable to the iPhone when prompted.
Step 2 - Keep following the Samsung Smart Switch.
Step 3 - Users should scan the QR code when prompted with the iPhone.
Step 4 - Tap on the ‘Start’ button on the iPhone.
Step 5 - Log in to WhatsApp on the new device using the old phone number.
Step 6 - Tap on the ‘Import’ option when you see it.
Step 7 - The chats will be imported once the process is complete.
