Contact List

How To Import Iphone Contact List Into Whatsapp?

Does your WhatsApp app show numbers but does not show contact names on your iPhone? In such a situation, communication through WhatsApp becomes stressful and almost impossible.

One of the reasons for not seeing the names is that WhatsApp has not updated the contact list. This is usually done automatically, but in this case, all you have to do is update the list manually.

Follow the steps below to manually update your WhatsApp contacts list on iPhone:

Step 1: Open the WhatsApp app and go to the Favorites tab.

Step 2: Go to the top of your Favorites list, then swipe down with your finger.

This will update your WhatsApp contact list. Your favorites will be saved alphabetically and the numbers will be changed to WhatsApp contacts.

If you are still unable to see the names after updating your contacts, it is recommended that you check your iPhone settings. This will make sure that WhatsApp has access to the contacts stored in your phonebook.

How to get access to the iPhone contacts list for WhatsApp?

Follow the steps below to ensure that WhatsApp has access to your contacts:

Step 1, first go to the phone settings page, then tap Apps. Then select WhatsApp from the list of applications.


Step 2 Tap Permissions and make sure all permissions are enabled.

It should be noted that when someone sends you a message on WhatsApp for the first time, this application will display the number of this contact. This is because the name of this contact has not yet been saved on your iPhone, and you must create a new contact name for him or her on your phone to view his or her name on WhatsApp.

Restore WhatsApp messages archive on iPhone

How can I restore deleted WhatsApp messages on iPhone

Because a copy of your messages does not remain on WhatsApp servers, messages cannot be restored through WhatsApp servers. In WhatsApp version 2.10.1 and later, you can use iCloud to support and retrieve your messages.

Support with iCloud

With iCloud support, you can back up messages and images sent by Watts to your iCloud account. Note that videos sent and received in WhatsApp are not supported due to iCloud storage. The iCloud backup process may take some time depending on your internet speed and data size.

You can manually support your iCloud chats whenever you want. for this job:

WhatsApp Settings> Chat Settings> Chat Backup

Then tap Back Up Now

You can also automatically back up your WhatsApp messages. To do this, use the Auto Backup option in the Chat Backup section and select the automatic backup time.


Requirements for backup using iCloud:

    • You must be using iOS 5.1 or higher
    • You must be logged in to your iCloud account: iPhone Settings > iCloud
    • For iOS  7, the Data & Documents option should be oniPhone Settings > iCloud > Documents & Data 
    • For iOS 8, the iCloud Drive  option must be oniPhone Settings> iCloud> iCloud Drive     
  • Have enough space on iCloud for messages, pictures, and voice messages
  • Enough space on the iPhone to make a backup


Use iCloud with mobile internet

If you are concerned about your mobile internet usage, we suggest that you limit your iCloud internet usage to Wi-Fi only. Follow these steps to disable iCloud use of your phone’s Internet:

iPhone Settings> iCloud> Documents & Data

Then set the Use Cellular Data option to Off.


Retrieve message history from iCloud

To recover your messages from iCloud, you first need to make sure that your WhatsApp messaging support is not available in iCloud at all. To do this, go to the following location:

WhatsApp Settings> Chat Settings> Chat Backup

If this is the last time you see WhatsApp messages backed up on this page, you just need to uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp. After verifying your phone number during the installation process, you will be asked to restore your messages, you just need to follow the instructions of the program to return your messages. The same requirements as for iCloud backup are needed to restore the backup.

Also, the phone number you use for backup and restore should be the same. In other words, you can not return other number messages on your WhatsApp. If you share an iCloud account, this will allow you to back up separately.

iPhone backup

If you have previously backed up your iPhone via iTunes or iCloud, you may be able to restore your WhatsApp past messages. See this Apple page for more information on backing up and restoring iPhone backups.
