WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging applications in the world, and for good reason: it offers free international calling, messaging services to anywhere in the world, state-of-the-art security, and more. In many ways, WhatsApp has made connecting to other people around the globe significantly easier. However, the one downside to WhatsApp - and many other apps and pieces of data, for that matter - is that transferring it from Android phones to iPhones tends to be frustrating and time-consuming.

Thankfully, if you're the owner of a shiny new iPhone and you want to bring your Android-based WhatsApp data over to iOS safely and conveniently, you should look no further than MobileTrans. Here's a guide on why you should use MobileTrans to transfer your WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone, as well as how to do it.

Why use MobileTrans?

The main reason why you should use MobileTrans to transfer your WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone is because of how efficient and quick it is. Depending on how much WhatsApp data you need to move from one phone to another, the transfer process can be as quick as a few seconds. This is fantastic, as it will save you tons of time compared to alternative methods.

Depending on the plan you get, MobileTrans can be used for a lot more than just WhatsApp transfers, too, giving it plenty of extra value. With MobileTrans, you can transfer all of your phone's data to another device, even if it's on another operating system. This is extremely helpful for new iPhone owners, as they'll likely have much more than just WhatsApp data to transfer to their new phone. Also, other social apps such as WeChat and Kik are also fully supported by MobileTrans, too. Additionally, you can also use MobileTrans to back up your phone's data on your Windows or Mac device, which is incredibly convenient.

Finally, MobileTrans is a very affordable software with a starting price of $30 for yearly licenses, and lifetime licenses are only slightly more costly. With how often new phones come out each year, having software like this at the ready at all times is hugely beneficial; thanks to the fact that MobileTrans is easy on the wallet, you'll never be stuck in a situation where you need the software but can't afford to keep access to it. MobileTrans has a free trial, too, meaning that you can give it a shot before committing to payment. You can download MobileTrans here.
