Change states of any kind are often tricky, especially when they’re between operating systems. After years of being an iPhone user, switching to Android can be a stressful experience.
One of the biggest reasons why a user cannot make that leap is not knowing how to transfer various apps and data from one phone to another, including WhatsApp. Previously, there was no direct way to do this that did not involve putting you and your data at risk.
Fortunately, there is finally a dedicated app that can make the transition from your iPhone to your new Android phone easier than it could have been done.
What is AppTrans?
AppTrans is the world’s first free app dedicated to transferring app data. With AppTrans, you can make a seamless WhatsApp transfer even between operating systems. From messages to attachments, AppTrans backups your entire WhatsApp chat history directly from your old phone, Google Drive, or computer.
Other than alternative transfer methods, AppTrans also allows you to merge data between iOS and Android devices instead of having to choose which version you want to keep. With this, you never have to worry about losing even a small part of the memories in your WhatsApp account.
3 Steps to Transfer WhatsApp Files from iPhone to Android
With AppTrans, transferring WhatsApp data from iPhone to Android takes just a few clicks. Here are the three steps you need to take to achieve this:
1. Install AppTrans
Download AppTrans on your computer. To transfer WhatsApp data from iPhone to Android, you will need to purchase a subscription from AppTrans premium. However, if you are looking to transfer apps and data within the same operating system, AppTrans Free will suffice for most of your needs.
For example, if you think that you will never return to iPhone again, you do not need to purchase additional subscriptions to transfer your data from one Android phone to another.
Alternatively, purchasing a lifetime AppTrans subscription is a great way to make sure you never have to worry about transferring your data, even if you decide to go back. AppTrans is supported by macOS 10.11 and Windows 7 and later.
2. Connect your devices
To transfer data directly between mobile phones, AppTrans works through wired cables. Make sure you choose a computer with enough ports for two connections at once. To perform the transfer, AppTrans requires your phones to be running at least iOS 7 or Android 5.0.
Alternatively, if you don’t have access to your iPhone, AppTrans can also restore WhatsApp data from iTunes backup.
3. Transfer started
Once both of your cell phones are connected, launch AppTrans on PC. Next, follow the onscreen steps to transfer your WhatsApp data from iPhone to your Android phone.
One noteworthy feature that AppTrans has compared to alternative apps is that it does not need WhatsApp to be installed on your target device already when the transfer is started. It will automatically search for and download the app during the transfer process.
Smooth WhatsApp data transfer
Without having to risk your data with jailbreaking, rooting or other privacy risks, AppTrans lets you backup, restore, transfer, and export your app data with a single click. AppTrans also helps increase your storage options by giving the option to store apps and their data on your PC at no extra charge.
In fact, AppTrans works not only with WhatsApp but with any other app compatible with your source and target devices. With AppTrans, switching from one operating system to another has never been easier.
