    Within the whatsapp settings there is a way for them to back up the conversations to their google account

    You need to go into settings on the iPhone and accept some special priveleges for the OnePlus Switch app. Same as if you were setting the phone up for work. Totally forgetting the correct terminology for it right now, lol. Kind of like device administrator...

    as far as now there is no way to transfer WhatsApp content some people claim that WhatsApp in an iPhone allows them to backup to Google drive and fortunately which is not true do we may have to wait for any official way to transfer WhatsApp data

    Just go to the settings in Play Store and switch off the "Auto Update" feature in the phone . Same with 5T & 6T also

    I was able to transfer all the whatsapp chats using this method

    Step 1: Make a complete local backup of your iPhone using iTunes and make sure it’s not encrypted. We already did create iTunes backup while talking about contacts and SMS backup and you can use the same.

    Step 2: Download and open iPhone Backup Browser and load the backup file you created using iTunes.

    Step 3: This one is a bit tricky. First of all, click on the (—) sign and then extract the file ChatStorage.sqlite to a folder. This is the file that has all the text backup of your WhatsApp conversations. If you wish to take Media Backup also, search for the group net.whatsapp.WhatsApp and then select and extract everything under the Library/Media section. Please refer to the two screenshots for better insight.

    Step 4: Once all these files are extracted, transfer them to the Android’s internal memory using a data cable.

    Step 5: Download and install WazzapMigrator app on your Android. The app is available as lite (free) version using which you can extract just the text messages to WhatsApp. But the pro version at $2.99 can also extract the media files as well. Depending upon the backup size, the extraction might take some time but it should not exceed 2 hours. But still, make sure you do support the developers if the app helps you.

    Step 6: The app will automatically detect the database, but you need to manually browse for the media folder for the app to recognize.

    Step 7: Once everything is in place, tap the Play button and wait for the app to create a WhatsApp backup file that can be read by WhatsApp for Android.

    Finally, all you need to do is install the official WhatsApp app and restore the local data while verifying your phone number.
