WhatsApp Messenger is one of the most popular and affordable media and document-sharing applications in the current social media app era. Millions of Android and iPhone users use this application to share images, videos, and other important data to stay connected with their loved ones or even to run their businesses.

While WhatsApp regularly backs up this shared data it doesn’t support migrating data from Android to iPhone due to security reasons, making it a nightmare for users who are switching platforms.

This is where the WonderShare MobileTrans app comes to the rescue. It provides users a simple and efficient method to transfer WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone instantly. It also lets users back up their WhatsApp data on a PC and restore it to their smartphone with few clicks.
