    I'll make it as simple as possible.
    Open Whatsapp>3 dots(Or however the menu looks like on iOS)>Chats>Chat Backup> BACK UP button using Google Drive.
    Next when you sign in to the same account(using the same number), it will restore automatically in the background(Media in the background, chats before it enters WhatsApp).

    Thank you for the explanation, but WhatsApp doesn't have a Google drive access on iPhone devices

    not sure about ios file system.
    but if you can, copy whatsapp folder from iphone to your op5t, install whatsapp and during set up it will check for backup.

    i used to do it in past for android to android.

    Does anyone have any ideas, on how to transfer/ migrate whatsapp media from iOS to Andriod. Google Drive isn't an option and i cannot see to find any other way to transfer this across. Can anyone recommend a program or method that's free or paid that may do this.

    Did this thing work for you? I also switched from iPhone to OnePlus 6 and would like to copy my chats to my new OnePlus.

    Update: None of the method posted in that "ifonetips" website worked for me. But after spending few more hours on google, found this: https://www.easyphonerecovery.com/transfer-whatsapp-chat-history-messages-iphone-to-android.html It helped me transfer all the WhatsApp chats and media from iPhone to my new OnePlus 6. It couldn't transfer some videos and few images look blurry on my OP6. Other than that everything worked as expected. Whole process took some time and here are the steps:

    1. Launch the app on your computer and connect your iphone to your computer. iTunes should be installed on your computer. You'll also need to disable 'find my iPhone' and iCloud backup on your iPhone.

    2. Software will take some time to recognize your device. When you see your WhatsApp chats on the software interface click 'backup messages' button to transfer all the messages from your iPhone to your computer.

    3. Now, insert the SIM on your OnePlus device, download the WhatsApp and verify your phone number.

    4. Enable USB debugging mode on your OnePlus and connect your computer via USB cable. Software might ask you to downgrade your WhatsApp messenger app on your device.

    5. Now, click on the database that you've made in step 3 and select 'transfer messages from database to phone' option.

    I tried this on my OP6 running Android Pie beta but it should work with other device too. Hope it helps!

    iCloud or Google drive can not work with this. But this dr.fone - Restore Social App can help to transfer WhatsApp conversation from iPhone to OnePlus 5T directly.

    Using email is the most troublesome way, and WazzapMigrator is relatively simple. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to introduce the detailed steps.
