Many people will tell that how difficult it is to move line from Android to iPhone because of the many reasons. It is, no doubt, a difficult task but yet a solvable problem. I have mentioned two main reasons. These are:

2. LINE does not offer this solution

However, there is no official way for how to transfer LINE chat history to new iPhone. LINE only offers importing your messages history and other relevant data officially between Android to Android devices, similarly, from one iOS to another iOS device.
