How to back up to iCloud
You can back up your WhatsApp chat history and media using your iCloud account. Before you get started, check if:
- You’re using the same phone number and iCloud account that the backup was created on.
- Your iPhone is updated to the latest iOS.
- Your available iCloud account and iPhone storage is at least 2.05 times bigger than the size of your backup.
Set up automatic backups
You can set up automatic, scheduled backups by tapping Auto Backup in WhatsApp Settings and choosing your backup frequency. This will back up your chats to your iCloud account. You can choose to include or exclude videos from the backup.
Manually back up your chats at any time
- Open WhatsApp Settings.
- Tap Chats > Chat Backup > Back Up Now.
