In the present era, Whats App has become the most important part of human’s life. As we know that WhatsApp is one of the top most messaging applications which are currently dominating the world by its performance. It has so many advanced techniques with it to sideline the other services. This messaging network has some indispensable terms and conditions to access the service and making use of that.
We can contact the people throughout the world and make video call, snap chat also available in this service. This gigantic messaging app reveals most of the security and privacy specifications to protect the information which is transmitted through it. This messaging service has to rock the world even though it has many rivals like hike, line, messenger etc.
The major problem of WhatsApp is that when a person is moving from one phone to another phone (new phone), automatically all the conversations with their friends and colleagues will remain in the old phone itself.
The major reason for this issue is that the app stores all the data locally rather than on the web servers. If the old handset is still available and has not moved from Android to iOS or vice versa, then the possibility is there to save the old chats and move them safely to a new home.
It is always important to make regular backups in order to prevent a person from losing data such as important messages, photos, contacts, notes etc. There are many options available in order to back up an iPhone using iTunes or iCloud so that the folks can save all the precious data.
How to restore WhatsApp messages to a new phone: iPhone
If a person likes to keep up all the conversations on his/her iPhone there are several ways available. The easiest way is to keep up these messages is by using the iCloud backup. In order to complete this process, one needs to take the old handset and in WhatsApp Settings choose the Chat Backup option.

If a person is running out of iCloud storage space then it is necessary to check that he/she not backing up anything, before that person pays for the more storage. First, go the Settings; click Usage on the iPhone and then scroll down to manage Storage. This will give all the details about the most space used. By moving on to the backup options and can turn off the backups for the individual apps.
How to backup an iPhone using Google Drive?
More recently Google has updated its Drive app for iOS so that backup can be done easily to the cloud in a reliable manner. Hence the synchronization of photos and videos to the Google Photos is not necessary and everything will be done automatically.

Whether any notification will be given when a person changes the contact number? There have been many new updates coming up from WhatsApp end and we can see that there is a new feature which has been introduced in the beta version of the app.
The app now available on the Windows phone is said to notify us whenever a user changes their contact number, they will receive a notification saying that the user has changed their contact. This is a good feature to make sure that the person is not losing the contact of the one who has changed their number.
An option is available for the users whether to notify their change of number. There are many reasons behind the change of their number, a few would like their contacts not to be aware of the change in number.
We have an option to enable or disable the notification and to with whom we would like it to be notified as well. If we do not want to share the number with any of the contacts, then we can just disable it and send a message in person to the one we want to notify.
WhatsApp will not notice it unless and until the option is being enabled by the user and it will remain not notified if the user wishes it to be that way. The notification will not notify the contacts and if the user doesn’t want that to happen, then they need to enable the option.
If we want to try this feature, we need to uninstall the original version of the app and then install the beta version to try this feature. The developers of WhatsApp have introduced the new feature in the beta channel.
