What Can You Transfer?

You can transfer your personal messages but the peer-to-peer payment messages and your Whatsapp call history cannot be transferred from an Android phone to an iPhone.

Where Does The Data Go?

Transferred data doesn't go to cloud storage as a result of the migration until you create an iCloud backup. However, WhatsApp can't see the data you transfer but your Android phone will still have your data unless you delete WhatsApp or wipe your phone.
