How to transfer Whatsapp between Android and iPhone

Are you looking for a simple way to transfer your WhatsApp data from an Android phone to an iPhone? Or perhaps vice versa? Look no further, as in this article I'm gonna show you one of the easiest way to shift your WhatsApp data from one phone to the other.

My father has been an Android mobile phone user for close to 10 years now. After numerous earlier failed attempts, this time I successfully convinced him to try an Apple iPhone as his daily driver. He decided to buy an Apple iPhone 11 as he liked the overall size, features and suited his budget.

After buying the device, he asked me to transfer all his important data from the old Android phone to the brand new iPhone 11. I successfully managed to transfer his contacts as they were saved on his Google account, however, I needed to find a way to safely transfer all his other data like pictures, videos, SMSes, and most importantly transfer data between iOS, Android & Windows Phone.

After looking around the Internet for good softwares that would seamlessly let me do the above job, I finally came across a software that would allow me to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone.

The MobileTrans software is available for both Windows as well as for the Mac. This software, once installed can easily connect to your devices and easily transfer WhatsApp chats from iPhone to iPhone, Android to iPhone and vice versa.

Why MobileTrans WhatsApp Transfer?

While, I understand that there are a lot of other available options to transfer your WhatsApp data from an old phone to a new phone, this software makes it very easy even for people with very less technical knowledge of softwares and phone apps.

The in-built tutorials of the software come in very handy for people who find technical jargon difficult to understand. Not only the tutorials are crisp and to the point, but they also come with pictures of various Android manufactures and their operating systems. This helps people guide through their own Android's operating system as a lot of brands prefer to have their own layer of OS over the stock Android OS.
