iPhone is the most sought after phone today. But switching from android to iPhone is a major struggle as transferring important data from android to iOS seemed to be very difficult specifically Whatsapp. Previously most migrating users had to abandon their old phone and start fresh. This is not a problem anymore as WhatsApp now lets you transfer your data from Android to iPhone.
The issue was so common and the solution was so much in-demand that many 3rd party softwares were developed to help address the problem having varying degrees of success. If you use whatsapp for business you will not want to lose any data at all and this upgrade is a sigh of relief for migrating users.
