WhatsApp working on natively transferring chat history between Android and iOS
Back in the days, switching to a new phone meant you’d lose most of your local data. Over time, it became easier to transfer your files, settings, and contacts, provided you’d stay on the same ecosystem. For instance, if you get a new Android phone, your WhatsApp conversations and media would automatically be restored thanks to an online Google Drive backup. However, in case you decide to get an iPhone, there is no official way to restore your conversations and media from your Android phone.
