Wondershare MobileTrans makes transferring WhatsApp from Android to iPhone a few clicks matter.

It’s tough to break out of the tight embrace of Apple and Google. And you feel this when switching from Android to iPhone or vice versa.

One of the particularly troublesome transfers is moving the WhatsApp data. You may find many tutorials claiming to do it but seldom succeed.

Besides, there is no other way except to rely on 3rd-party providers, as there is no WhatsApp-supported method to do it.

Thinking of Google Drive?

No, it won’t work. WhatsApp on iOS is compatible with iCloud. And anyway, the encryption protocols are different, so installing Google Drive on your flashy new iPhone won’t help either.

But still, this is doable by using…

Wondershare MobileTrans

Wondershare MobileTrans WhatsApp transfer makes all this hustle look easy, and in no time, you’ll be transferring data between the two operating systems (Android & iOS) without breaking a sweat. It supports transferring all WhatsApp data, including messages, attached photos, videos, audio files, etc.

Moreover, you can also use MobileTrans for transferring WhatsApp business, LINE, Wechat, Kik, Viber, and GB WhatsApp from your old phones to your new ones.

Besides, MobileTrans is a complete data transfer tool that supports transfering various kinds of phone data from Android to Android, from iPhone to iPhone, or from Android to iPhone, from iPhone to Android, including messages, photos, videos and app data, etc.

Some other notable features include:

  • 6000+ device support
  • Backup/Restore WhatsApp data on Windows or Mac
  • Save WhatsApp messages as PDF/HTML and view them on a computer
  • Transferring with/without a PC
  • Selective data transfer

Conclusively, this is a decent tool one shouldn’t miss for making the switch effortless.

Let’s go through the process sequentially, and see how it works.

Android to iPhone WhatsApp Transfer With a PC

Step 1: Download and install a suitable application for your computer OS. Please note that the applications are different for Windows and Mac, and the license purchased for one won’t work on the other.

Step 2:  Connect both phones via USB cables to the PC. Make sure the USB debugging is turned on the Android device.

Take note of the ‘Source’ and ‘Destination’ mentioned above on each device and click Flip in the center top to interchange.

Subsequently, verify the data segments to transfer and uncheck to skip any specific type.

Step 3: Click on Start and respond to any pop-ups accordingly. Shortly, you will see something similar upon successful completion:

Still, there is another method to do it, and you won’t need a PC for it.

Android to iPhone WhatsApp Transfer Without a PC

This method for a phone-to-phone data switch requires a connector. In this case, you’ll need a USB to Lightning cable for transferring WhatsApp data between Andriod and iOS.

Step 1: Get MobileTrans App from Google Play Store. Complete the installation and launch the program on your phone.

Step 2: Start by connecting both the devices and open MobileTrans on the Android.

Make sure WhatsApp is selected in the Choose transfer APP and is also installed on the iPhone. Afterward, click the Android to iPhone tab.

Step 3: You’ll be asked about the backup version being used in the transfer. Check that out and manually backup the latest data before proceeding.

Step 4: Enter the WhatsApp-linked cell number, followed by the verification code. It’ll also ask for the PIN if the two-step verification is enabled.

Once you get through this, the user interface will show the available text, video, audio, etc., to initiate the transfer.

Step 5: Choose to connect with the USB to the lightning cable, login into the iPhone WhatsApp application, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the transfer.

So these were the two methods that make it effortless to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone.


Available on Windows and Mac, Wondershare MobileTrans has three major features: WhatsApp transfer, Phone transfer, and Backup & Restore. And though MobileTrans has a trial version, it doesn’t allow WhatsApp data transfer — a premium-only feature.

For individual usage (up to five mobile devices and a single PC), all these are valued at $29.99/year or $39.99 for a lifetime. Alternatively, you can have all three at $39.99 per year or lifetime access and updates at $49.99.

Education plans enjoy a 30% discount over the individual tiers. However, there is no lifetime subscription, and all the plans renew annually. These are priced at $27.99 for a fully-featured version and $20.99 for every single feature individually.

Team plans start from $59.95, based on the number of devices and users you are looking for.

And you shouldn’t have any reservations since MobileTrans is backed by a 7-day money-back guarantee.


Which devices are supported by MobileTrans for moving Whatsapp data?

MoblieTrans has excellent support for over 6000+ devices from leading manufacturers like Google, Apple, Samsung, Motorola, etc. Besides, MobileTrans is expected to work perfectly on Android 4.6 to 12 and iOS 6 to 15.

Can Whatsapp messages be restored without backing them up?

No. You will need to create a backup on MobileTrans with its Backup and Restore or within the WhatsApp application.

Can Whatsapp messages be viewed on your PC?

Yes. One can back up the WhatsApp message with the MobileTrans Backup and Restore feature and read them on the PC with the desktop application.


We hope this tutorial helped you make the switch to the Apple ecosystem easier.

MobileTrans has a nice user interface and is effortless to use. Anyone can follow the on-screen prompts and contact 24 hours support service for any assistance.

Although MobileTrans can accomplish this, we have another tutorial if you’re just about transferring your contacts from Android to iPhone. If you have also purchased a Mac, you can move your files from your Android Phone to your Mac with these Android file transfer tools.
