WhatsApp uses different backup solutions for the Android and iOS. It uses Google Drive to backup entire chat history while iCloud is being used to backup and restore WhatsApp data for iPhone. Both OS have their own technology and it is virtually impossible to back up and restore Android’s WhatsApp data to any iPhone manually. I have recently shifted from Android to iOS and have faced the problem while transferring my WhatsApp account including data from one device to another. Recently iPhone WhatsApp users get a native option to transfer data from iOS to any Samsung based android device. The scenario is different for the opposite case. You need to use third-party tool to transfer data from android to iPhone. Wondershare Wutsapper is the tool which can be used to transfer all WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone.
