    WhatsApp backup transfer from Android to iPhone is now POSSIBLE! It was a very hectic process a couple of years ago but WhatsApp made it possible one-way last year. Samsung introduced the feature exclusively to move data from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy devices, but the other way hasn't been possible so far. Apple and WhatsApp now make the process possible – letting users transfer WhatsApp backup data from Android to iPhone.

    In the latest update, WhatsApp chat data can now be transferred from Android devices to iPhone. The process can be done via the Move to iOS app, which has been long available on Android devices to transfer data between them. The process remains the same as it has been with the “Move to iOS” app, except for the part that requires transfer of WhatsApp data.
