Modern joke says that people are divided into two types. The first already do backups, and the second – have not yet had time to come to this. If you like to live on the edge and belong to the second group, good news for you. You can restore photos, correspondence (including WhatsApp messages) and the contact list using the dr.fone program. This applies to both accidentally deleted data and files missing due to the breakdown of the smartphone.
We strongly advise to keep everything in the “clouds” and not to resort to using third-party applications, but sometimes it is vital. dr.fone is a program for Windows and macOS operating systems and is designed to work with the internals of smartphones. Works with devices running Android and iOS. The main screen of the application consists of several utilities: Recover, Transfer, Repair, Switch, Erase, Unlock and a couple of others, including the Restore Social App. The task of each of them is reflected in the title. The transfer will help with the transfer of files and Recover – with their recovery.
Let’s try the Restore Social App, which is responsible for creating a backup copy, restoring chats and transfer to WhatsApp, Viber and other instant messengers. To begin, the program will determine the connected smartphone and synchronizes with it. Immediately after this, dr.fone will offer to choose the messengers you want to restore, transfer it to another device (even an Android smartphone) or perform a backup.
We are interested in the ability to transfer chats to another smartphone. We connect another phone and click on the “Transfer” button. Android phones should be put into USB debugging mode – for this, the application provides convenient step-by-step instructions for a wide range of models, including Samsung, Sony, HTC and Huawei, as well as for instructions for various versions of Android.
Your iPhone (the smartphone from which data will be transmitted) should be listed on the left, and your new phone – the one to which you are sending messages – should be shown on the right. If this is not the case, click the “Flip” button to switch them. You will be warned that the process is irreversible: that is, the chat history of the WhatsApp phone, where the data is transferred, will be replaced by new data.
Follow any prompts indicated – for example, you may be asked to upgrade WhatsApp to the latest version. When the process is complete, click OK to continue. After completing the data transfer, you should discover that your chat history has been successfully transferred along with the attached files.
dr.fone is a real combine to work with instant messengers. In one click, you can make a backup of WhatsApp or export chat data to a computer.
The application has other features – it allows you to return deleted text messages, photos, and other content, and also fixes errors on the iPhone or iPad. One of the most vivid examples is if the device constantly displays a screen with an “apple”, reboots or even “catches” a black screen.
The minus of the program is a paid basis. A yearly subscription to the Restore Social App will cost $ 30 while unlocking the utility costs $ 40 forever. Nevertheless, it is a powerful tool that performs the stated functions. It is compatible with the iPhone and more than 6,000 Android smartphones and works with different file types. The program is useful to those who want to transfer WhatsApp data from iPhone to Android and vice versa, recover photos and documents even when they seem lost forever.
