In mid-August, the WhatsApp development team began rolling out the iPhone chat feature to Samsung smartphones, which is now available to all owners of these smartphones. At the same time, the developers of WhatsApp announced that you will need a cable with Lightning and USB-C connectors for this procedure.
At the moment, the popular WhatsApp platform only offers this feature for Samsung smartphones. Users can transfer their account information, profile pictures, personal and group chats, media files, and even settings from iPhone to Samsung smartphone. The company announced that it is looking to expand this chat transfer feature to include more smartphones from the South Korean tech giant on the compatibility list.
Any Samsung phone running Android 10 or newer with Samsung SmartSwitch 126.96.36.199 or later can now use the WhatsApp chat function. The WhatsApp blog says that the feature will soon be available for other Android smartphones. On the other hand, iPhone users need WhatsApp iOS version 188.8.131.52 or higher to use this feature. With regard to the availability of the cable, yes, data transfer for maximum privacy is done this way, and not through the cloud.
Instructions for transferring data from iPhone to Samsung phone:
- Turn on Samsung and when prompted, connect to iPhone with a cable
- Follow Samsung Smart Switch instructions
- When prompted, scan the QR code displayed on the new device with the iPhone camera
- Click “Start” on your iPhone and wait for the process to complete
- Continue to customize your Samsung
- When you get to the home screen, open WhatsApp and sign in using the same phone number that was used on your old device
- When prompted, click “Import” and wait for the process to complete
- Complete the activation of the new device and you will see your chats
