From personal experience you can't. Since Android backs up Whatsapp chats to Google Drive and iOS to iCloud.

Spent a week trying to do this. To help a mate. With free and paid software.

I never came right.... maybe one day there will be a solution.

Hey Guys,

Recently moved from a Samsung to an iPhone. Had the same issue.

I was successful in transferring over my chat history/media etc using software called "Backuptrans Android WhatsApp to iPhone Transfer". I paid 19 Euros for it if I'm not mistaken and it ran flawlessly. I had an issue which was an error on my side when using the software and the developers support team was very responsive and gave me a complete way through as to how to use their software.

Can see the software here

Hope that's helps!
