Several requirements must be met:

  • The iPhone must be new (or factory reset).
  • Both smartphones must be connected to charging and one Wi-Fi network.

After that, on an Android smartphone, just open the Transfer to iOS application and select WhatsApp from the list of available data. Follow the instructions on the screen.
