2. Making it easy to transfer your WhatsApp chat history with Smart Switch

Your WhatsApp chat history does not need to disappear when you switch from an iPhone2 to a Galaxy smartphone.


Samsung has recently announced that users can transfer their chat histories and photos from iPhone2 to a Samsung Galaxy device3, so that they can continue their conversations from where they left off. 


With Smart Switch on Samsung Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, users can simply port content and moments such as photos, videos, contacts, calendar events, notes and more via a wired connection connecting your iPhone2 and your new Galaxy smartphone.


This takes under 7 minutes for 8GB worth of content, and is easy and secure as users do not need to log in to their cloud drive to enable this migration.


Here’s how to do so:


  • Connect your new Galaxy phone to your old device with a compatible Lightning to USB-C cable.
  • To transfer data, confirm your new Galaxy smartphone as a trusted device. When the “Trust this Computer?” alert appears on your iPhone, tap “Trust”.


  • Choose the data you want to bring over from your old device, and then tap “Import”.
  • Specific to copying your WhatsApp content
    - Select the app you want to download on Google Play Store (make sure it includes WhatsApp), and tap Install
    - When prompted, scan the QR code with your old device to open WhatsApp.
    - Tap Start on your old device, and wait for the process to complete. 


  •  Let Smart Switch import your data to your new Galaxy smartphone


  • Additionally, if you have additional files to bring from iCloud, you can also choose “Get your iCloud data” on the Smart Switch app.
  • Choose the content you want to transfer and tap “Import”.


Before you start:


  • Ensure both smartphones are switched on and are sufficiently charged
  • Use the same phone number on your Galaxy smartphone as the old device
  • Your Galaxy smartphone must be factory new or reset to factory settings before you start
