Backing up WhatsApp chat is a handy trick to keep your crucial WhatsApp data accessible when you switch devices or, unfortunately, data loss happens. Under that circumstance, you can directly restore them to a new phone. If you don't know how to do it, below, we will explain how to restore WhatsApp on an Android or iPhone device.

Part 1. How to Restore WhatsApp Messages from One iPhone to Another

You can either restore WhatsApp messages on a new iPhone from iCloud or a local computer, depending on where your backup stores. iCloud is more convenient and straightforward, but it only offers 5GB of storage for free, and besides, it requires a stable WiFi connection. But if you make a backup locally, you can get rid of that worry since local storage usually offers you more free storage space.

Now, you can choose the way you'd like to use.

1. Using EaseUS MobiMover

If you're looking for a convenient and flexible way to back up and restore WhatsApp messages, try this feature-rich WhatsApp manager - EaseUS MobiMover. It is a reliable iOS data management tool that can help you do many things when it comes to managing WhatsApp data, such as:

With such a tool, you can either choose to transfer WhatsApp messages from one iPhone to another directly or back up your WhatsApp data from the old iPhone to the computer and restore it to another iPhone. If you have backed up your WhatsApp chat with EaseUS MobiMover, then it's time to follow the steps below to restore it to your new iPhone.

Step 1. Connect your iPhones to your computer using a USB cable, launch EaseUS MobiMover, and choose "WhatsApp" > "Phone to Phone".

Choose WhatsApp backup

Step 2. Check the source iPhone and the target iPhone. If necessary, click the "Switch" button to change the transfer direction. Afterward, click "Transfer" to start transferring WhatsApp messages from iPhone to iPhone.

2. Using iTunes

Restoring your iPhone from iTunes is another option if you've ever backed up your old iPhone to iTunes. By doing so, you can get everything, including your WhatsApp data back to your new device. But be careful to use this method if your new device has stored some data since the iTunes backup will erase everything and get your current data replaced by what's in the backup. 

Step 1. First of all, make sure you've made a backup of your iPhone on iTunes. If not, just create one. If you don't know whether you've made one or not, just check it on your computer.

Step 2. Tap "Trust this computer" if required.

Step 3. Click on your iPhone icon in the upper left corner of the iTunes screen.

Step 4. Click on "Summary" from the menu.

Step 5. Tick the box next to "This computer" and click "Restore."

Actually, WhatsApp not only lets you manage chat history by backing up and restoring but also allows you to export individual or all chat from iPhone or Android.

3. Using iCloud

iCloud allows users to sync all WhatsApp messages, including photos, videos, and voice messages to your device as long as you've enabled iCloud backup on your old device. This requires you to log in to the same iCloud account you use to back up on your old iPhone.

Step 1. First of all, you need to back up your WhatsApp messages from your old iPhone to iCloud. Here are the steps.

1. Go to the Settings > Your profile > iCloud.

2. Scroll down to find WhatsApp and switch to toggle it on.

3. Go to your WhatsApp app > Settings > Chat button > Chat Backup > Back Up Now.

Step 2. Then, open your new iPhone. Delete the WhatsApp app from your device and reinstall it.

Step 3. Set up your WhatsApp like the first time you install it. Remember to use the same WhatsApp account you use to backup.

Step 4. Then, it will automatically detect the available iCloud backup. Tap "Restore Chat History" to get your chats back.

Though it's quite simple to back up your WhatsApp chat with iCloud, problems may occur during the backup process. If, unfortunately, you run into these problems, just try to back up WhatsApp on your iPhone without using iCloud.

Part 2. How to Restore WhatsApp Messages from One Android Device to Another
