--Monday, Jun. 5, 2017
People may need to transfer WhatsApp chats from old phone to new one sometimes. For instance, if you own an old iPhone (iPhone 5S), what you want to do is to transfer WhatsApp chat history from iPhone to new Samsung Galaxy S8 as those messages mean a lot to you.

  • Retrieve Deleted WhatsApp Messages from Android
  • How to Back up and Restore WhatsApp Messages on Android

  • You are able to find out two different ways to easily transfer the WhatsApp messages from iPhone to Samsung. Please check them out below!

    Method 1: Transfer WhatsApp Messages from iOS to Samsung Galaxy S8 via Email Chat

    The first way I want to introduce would be using Email Chat to transfer WhatsApp chat history from iPhone to Android phone.

    Step 1 Launch WhatsApp app on your iPhone and navigate to the "Chats" option at the bottom side.And then you can select the WhatsApp messages that you would like to migrate. Press the conversation and slide it to the left side. Then the options will be shown as below. Please hit "More" > "Export Chat" to go on.

    Click More

    Step 2 Then there is a window with the message "Attach Media"/"Without Media" will pop up. You can just click on one of them according to your need. And please tap "Mail" after that.

    Select Mail

    Step 3 Please enter the e-mail address and press the "Send" button. Go to your Samsung Galaxy S8 and log in your e-mail account. You can find out and view the e-mail with the WhatsApp messages attached, which would be stored in TXT format.

    Method 2: Transfer WhatsApp Chat from iPhone to Samsung Using iOS WhatsApp Transfer

    The other way I want to introduce would be using iOS WhatsApp Transfer program to migrate the WhatsApp chat history easily. iOS WhatsApp Transfer is a pretty effective program that can help you to move WhatsApp chat history and attachments between iPhone/iPad or Android devices. Now, let's see how it works.

    Step 1 Download iOS WhatsApp Transfer

    Step 3 Plug Both iPhone and Samsung into PC
    Now, you should plug iPhone and Samsung into PC via the matching USB cables. But please note that iPhone should be connected as the source device (locate on the left pane) while the Samsung should be as the destination device (locate on the right pane).

    Step 4 Transfer WhatsApp Messages from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S8
    After your devices are successfully connected and detected, you need to click on the "Transfer" button and the program would start to migrate the WhatsApp messages from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S8.

    Note: The chat history on your Samsung phone would be erased when the transfer is done. So you are recommended to backup WhatsApp conversation from Samsung firstly.

    Confirm Transferring WhatsApp

    Step 5 Restore WhatsApp Chats on Samsung Galaxy S8
    Now you can disconnect your devices. Then go to your Samsung and restore the history when you open the WhatsApp app.

    WhatsApp Transfer Completed

    The job is done! Actually, using iOS WhatsApp Transfer program would be more effective and you don't have to worry about how to import the chats as well as the format. All you need to do is having several "clicks". So why not have a try?
