Part 2: Other 6 Ways to Transfer WhatsApp from iPhone to iPhone

Method 1. Transfer WhatsApp messages from iPhone to iPhone with WhatsApp QR code

WhatsApp now allows users on Android and iOS to transfer their chat history, including media attachments, between phones of the same OS. The new chat transfer feature uses a QR code and can transfer messages, media files, and more. However, payment messages and call history cannot be transferred. To transfer WhatsApp chat history via QR code on iOS, both phones need to have WhatsApp for iOS version or above installed.

Then, open WhatsApp on the old iPhone, go to Settings > Chats > Transfer Chats to iPhone > Start. Install WhatsApp and register with the phone number on the new phone, then select Continue on Transfer chat history to iPhone. Scan the QR code on the old device using the camera, and once the transfer is complete, set up the profile on the new device.


Method 2. Transfer WhatsApp from iPhone to iPhone with iCloud backup

One of the ways to move WhatsApp from iPhone to iPhone is using iCloud backup. iCloud, when enabled in the device saves all your data in the device and one can easily restore it anytime. Let us know how to get this done.

1. Go to “Settings” and tap your “Apple ID/ [your name]”, then hit “iCloud” on your source iPhone.


2. Now, scroll down to the option “iCloud Backup,” followed by enabling the “iCloud Backup” switch.

3. Subsequently, hit on “Back Up Now”.


4. Next, take your target device now and set it up. If you have already gone through the setup process, reset it again. For this, tap “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Erase All Contents and Settings”.


5. Now, your device will reboot. When it starts, reach the “Apps & Data” screen.

6. Now, tap on “Restore from iCloud Backup”. Enter the same iCloud ID as the previous phone and choose the backup. You will get the WhatsApp messages transferred.


Method 3. Transport WhatsApp Chats to a New iPhone by Using WhatsApp iCloud Backup

WhatsApp also offers a backup service. You need to ensure that you have backed up your chats, and it will save the data in the iCloud server. The steps that need to be followed are given below.

  1. To initiate the process, you need to ensure that the iCloud backup function is enabled on both devices.
  2. From the old device now, launch WhatsApp.
  3. Go to “Settings” and tap “Chat Settings.”
  4. Tap “Chat Backup” followed by “Back Up Now.”


  1. WhatsApp’s iCloud server will save your chats now.
  2. Now, you can take your target iPhone and begin by installing WhatsApp on it.
  3. Login by entering your contact number.
  4. You will see the “Restore Chat History” option when you enter. Just tap on it and get your chats in this device.


Tip: What's the difference between iCloud backup and WhatsApp iCloud backup

You may now wonder what is the actual difference between the aforementioned iCloud backup in the first method and the WhatsApp iCloud backup in the second method, correct?

iCloud backup: It is the standard way to backup all your data over your iPhone. Be it, your photos, contacts, music (purchased from iTunes), videos, apps, settings, or passwords. In other words, almost all your data over your iPhone is backed up over your iCloud account using the iCloud backup feature. Therefore, if you wish to switch to a new iPhone or other iOS device and need to restore the Whatsapp data, you need to restore the entire iCloud backup over the new device.

Whatsapp iCloud backup: You manually perform a backup of only Whatsapp Chats and data, for instance, mainly photos and videos (if included beforehand). Hence, when you switch to a new iOS device and wish to restore the Whatsapp data. You only have to restore the individual Whatsapp chat backup over your iCloud account to your new device. That means all other data over your iPhone remains intact.

Method 4. Move WhatsApp messages from iPhone to iPhone with iTunes Backup

iTunes is a service by Apple that sorts many of our tasks. And when you wish to transfer WhatsApp messages from iPhone to iPhone, this can also help you. You can back up your data and restore it on the new phone. However, this won't be possible if you want only WhatsApp to get backed up. iTunes doesn’t support selective backup and therefore you will end up backing up the whole device at once. Here are the steps.

  1. To begin with, open iTunes on your PC and connect your source device using the lightning cord.
  2. When the device is detected, you will see the phone icon at the top in the iTunes interface.
  3. Now, click the “Summary” tab on the left panel and choose “Backup Now”. Your data along with WhatsApp will be successfully backed up now.
  4. Grab the target iPhone where you want to transfer WhatsApp. Then, connect it using the authentic cord.
  5. Launch iTunes and tap the phone icon again.
  6. Choose the “Summary” tab followed by “Restore Backup.”


Method 5. Transfer WhatsApp conversations via email chat

Here is the next way to transfer WhatsApp iPhone to iPhone. Emailing chats can be the easiest way to fulfill your needs. But the downside you should accept connected with this method is that it can only transfer one chat at a time. Therefore, if you want all the chats to get moved, this can be time-consuming. See the guide below.

1. Select the conversation you want to send on the new iPhone.

2. After selecting, slide the chat and get the “More” option.

3. Tap on the “Email Conversation” option after that.

4. You will be asked subsequently if you wish to attach the media along with the chats or not. Move ahead according to your needs or preferences.

5. Now, enter your email ID and tap “Done”.


6. You can now access these chats on your new iPhone by entering the same email ID.

Method 6. Transfer WhatsApp conversations via iMazing

Another way, if you want to transfer WhatsApp chat from iPhone to iPhone without iCloud, is iMazing. This tool allows the users to effortlessly copy the content from the old iPhone to the new one. Sans any need of iTunes or iCloud, it keeps privacy intact.

1. Connect your source device to your PC and launch the iMazing tool. Then select your iPhone in the left sidebar and the “Manage Apps” option from the middle of the screen.


2. From the following screen, opt for the “Device” tab and opt for the Whatsapp app from the list of apps available. Hit the “Backup” button afterward.


3. Now, a new Backup App Data window pops up. Here, select the destination location where you wish to extract the Whatsapp chats and data.

4. Select “Backup and Extract App Data” then hit “Next”. It will then start backing up your data. You need to be patient here as the process may take a bit long.


5. Once the backup completes, disconnect the source device. And then, you need to repeat Step 1, but now with the Target device connected with your PC.


6. From the upcoming screen, opt for the “Device” tab again and then hit the “inverted arrow” button next to the “Uninstall” button.

7. Select the “Restore App Data” option and a new window will crop up on your screen. Now, push the “Choose” button and navigate to the Whatsapp backup file you just performed, followed by hitting the “Done” button.
