If you already know that you will be gettiong a new iPhone, you can create a WhatsApp backup and then restore it to your new phone. But how does it work? On the iPhone, you can create a WhatsApp Chat Backup by clicking the gear settings at the bottom of the chat overview, selecting Chats, and then going to Chat Backup. There you can select when and how to create a backup. If you change your mobile, just make a backup immediately. But here is the problem: If you are not registered on the iCloud, WhatsApp will tell you to log in there so that a WhatsApp backup can be created. Without iCloud there is no WhatsApp backup.

When you get your new iphone, begin by installing WhatsApp. Then start up and during the installation your iPhone will find the WhatsApp Chat Backup on iCloud. At this point, if you aren’t already, the iPhone will advise you to log in to iCloud. If you set up your iPhone so that iCloud is part of your backups, WhatsApp automatically finds the backup of your WhatsApp chats stored in the cloud when you set up. Then when WhatsApp restores the backup on your new iPhone, you can find your WhatsApp messages as usual with WhatsApp. You still have to re-enter your name, and during the first use the images will be loaded. After this, you can then start using it straight away.

If you are not careful however, you are going to completely lose your chat history. The luck we have is that WhatsApp has made it quite simple to move your chat history from one Android Phone to the other.

If you don’t have enough memory space available on your storage organ (Phone storage), you certainly won’t be able to create any local backup copy. Also make sure your device is not connected to the computer.
