Using the Move to iOS app, WhatsApp has been beta testing the ability to transfer chat history and data from Android to iOS for some time. Yesterday, WhatsApp revealed that customers who wanted to move their WhatsApp data from an Android smartphone to an iPhone or reset their iPhone could now do so.
