Developed by the company Tenorshare, to which we already owe many file repair, backup and transfer software, Tenorshare iCareFone Transfer is a very handy tool for Windows and Mac OS that allows you to transfer data from your WhatsApp account or WhatsApp Business to a new phone.
In the event that a user, private or professional, wants to modify their smartphone, they must perform a whole series of manipulations to restore all their data, whether it is their messages, contacts, photos, documents and all kinds of files. For this, there are specially designed software and even computer-free procedures to simplify the transfer process. But backing up and restoring, or simply transferring, the various types of data contained in a WhatsApp account is another matter.
How to transfer your WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business data to a new phone?
With Tenorshare iCareFone Transfer software, it is very simple, just connect the 2 smartphones to the junction computer where you installed the software (Windows or Mac) and follow all the steps that will be shown to you. Note that the transfer can also be made from an Android smartphone to an iPhone and vice versa, or with 2 smartphones with the same operating system (iPhone to iPhone and Android to Android). Please note that if the new smartphone has a WhatsApp account with data, the data will be overwritten.
First, the software will ask you to connect the 2 phones and determine which is the source and destination device. In any case, it will be necessary to unlock smartphones and provide the connection to the computer with a code system to be validated. When it comes to a smartphone with the same operating system, the procedure is faster and the transfer is almost instantaneous. However, please note that depending on the amount of data, the transfer may take longer or shorter. Once the backup of the source device is done, the user needs to log in with their WhatsApp account on the target smartphone and accept the connection to receive the data.
If you are transferring from Android smartphone to iPhone or iPhone to Android, Tenorshare iCareFone Transfer adds an extra step by performing a data backup on the source device and introducing a security step with a WhatsApp verification code. If encrypted backup is enabled, you must also enter the 64-digit key.
The user then has the option of specifying the type of data he wishes to transfer in order to reduce the transfer time and avoid recreating unnecessary data that takes up space. With a very practical system of ticks, the user specifies what he wants to keep: message, animated GIFs, audio files, documents, pictures, stickers, video and voice notes.
How to backup WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business data to your computer?
Tenorshare iCareFone Transfer is not only a transfer tool, it also offers other great features such as backing up your WhatsApp or WhatsApp Business email data to the computer and also restoring them.
WhatsApp includes a backup program, but if it is set to be saved on your smartphone, in the event that your device is unusable, you will not be able to restore your data when you find a new smartphone.
With Tenorshare iCareFone Transfer, you can make regular backups to avoid this kind of trouble. To do this, start the backup procedure, the command of which is located just below the transfer. Then follow the automatic backup procedure.
Here, all data is backed up and each backup is independent of the others. That is, they are not overwritten every time you make a new backup, and allows the user to restore backups to earlier dates if desired.
To restore a backup, it’s as simple as the software asking you to select the backup you want to restore and specify whether the restore should be done on an iPhone or an Android device. However, note that the data on the target device will be overwritten and therefore replaced by the selected backup.
