Detailed Steps

This Support article details how to use TouchCopy to copy WhatsApp messages from your iPhone to your PC or Mac.

If you have WhatsApp messages on your iPhone that you need to transfer to your PC/Mac, TouchCopy can copy them in the same way that you can copy SMS and iMessages.

Firstly, you will need to open TouchCopy and connect your iPhone. Once TouchCopy has read your device, navigate to the 'Messages' tab (1) on the left hand side of TouchCopy. You can then scroll down the messages to see your different messages, grouped by type. Your WhatsApp messages will be at the bottom of the list.

From there you can then select the message that you wish to copy or print by clicking on the name of the contact with whom the conversation is with (2). Then, you can either select 'Copy Selected Conversations' or 'Copy to PC/Mac' to copy the selected WhatsApp message to your PC/Mac as a HTML file named after the contact with whom you've exchanged messages; Or you can select 'Print' to print out the selected conversation directly from TouchCopy (3).

I'm viewing your trial version of TouchCopy for copying messages from my iphone to my Windows based computer. I have 1500 contacts on my iphone and a hundreds of messages. So far, it only shows a personal names in the messages. It shows a lot of phone numbers linked to messages but not the names. I may buy your product if it links ALL NAMES with phone numbers. But this is not what I see in the trial version.

@Carl Hobbs We are currently investigating what may be causing this unexpected behavior. Unfortunately, if the issue occurs in the trial version for you it will also occur in the full version.
