LINE is one of the world’s widely used instant communication apps that empowers users to exchange texts, images, videos, music, etc. If you are a regular user of LINE, you might have a lot of important messages stored in it that you would like to transfer to the new phone. It is easy to transfer LINE from your old Android phone to a new one or from your old iPhone to a new one. However, things become a lot more difficult when you want to transfer LINE from Android to iPhone. So, how to transfer LINE chat history to new phone? Let’s discuss why is it difficult to transfer and also discuss the click-based solution offered by Tenorshare iCareFone for LINE.
Can I Transfer LINE from Android to iPhone Directly?
Unfortunately, there is no direct built-in or official way to transfer LINE from Android to iOS device. LINE only supports the same OS transfer (Android to Android or iPhone to iPhone). The main reason is that Android and iOS run on completely different operating architectures. iOS also does not allow downloading of random files. So, the difference in operating systems requires a very sophisticated approach to make the transfer. That’s why LINE hasn’t been able to offer the solution till now, and it does not seem to offer it anytime soon.

Move LINE Chat History from Android to iPhone Via Email or Google Drive
Other than using Tenorshare iCareFone for LINE, you can also transfer LINE from Android to iOS via email or Google Drive. However, both do come with some disadvantages. Let’s explore these two options one by one:
Copy LINE Chat History from Android to iPhone with Email
Follow the below steps to transfer LINE from Android to iOS with email:
- Open LINE on your Android phone.
- Open one chat that you want to transfer.
- Click the menu icon from the top right corner and then click “Other settings”.
- Click “Export chat history” and then select Gmail as the medium to transfer.
- Send the email to yourself.
- From your iPhone, sign in to the same Gmail account and then access the chat from your inbox.
This way, you can access LINE chats on your iPhone. However, you cannot restore those chats to your iPhone LINE app. All you can do is access them from your email. Besides that, you can only export one chat at a time, so overall it becomes a time-consuming process.
Migrate LINE Chat History from Android to iPhone with Google Drive
Follow the below steps to transfer LINE from Android to iPhone with Google Drive:
- Open LINE on your Android phone.
- Go to “Settings” and then click Chats > Back up and restore chat history > Back up to Google Drive.
- Install the Google Drive app on your iPhone. From there, you can now access LINE chats.
Just like the email solution, the chats you access from Google Drive will not be able to restore to your iPhone LINE app. So, whenever you want to access those chats, you have to open the Google Drive app and check the chats from there.
In this article, we have explained how to make LINE transfer to new phone. Since the target is to transfer LINE from Android to iPhone, so there is no built-in direct way to do it.
