I. Directly Import Chat History LINE Android to iPhone

To import your LINE chat history directly from Android to iPhone, we suggest that you use Tenorshare WhatsApp Transfer. This third-party app can help you to transfer your chat histories and other multimedia data from one device to another without any hassle. You can use it for importing chat history of Line, WeChat, WhatsApp, and many other instant messaging apps.

If you want to use Tenorshare iCareFone Transfer to import your LINE chat history, you should follow this guide:

  • To import LINE chat history to your iPhone, you should choose “LINE” on the main interface of the program.

II. Import LINE Chat History from Android to iPhone through Email

Another proven way to import LINE chat history from an Android device to iPhone is through email. To use this method, follow the steps below:

  • Open LINE on your Android device and open a conversation.
  • Look for the “v” button and click on “Setting”. From there, select “export chat history”.
  • Tap “Email” and send the chat history to your preferred email address.
  • Open the LINE app on your iPhone. If you don’t have the app, you need to download it. Afterward, you should launch the Email app and log in to the email to download the chat history sent earlier from the Android device.

It is important to know that this particular method doesn’t allow you to restore the chat history directly on the LINE of your new iPhone.

III. LINE Import Chat History to Google Drive

The last method for importing LINE chat history from Android to iPhone is using Google Drive.

  • Get started by launching the LINE app on an Android device.
  • Look for the “Friends” tab and navigate to the “Setting” option
  • Choose the “Chats” option and then click ”Backup and Restore Chat history”.
  • The next step is to tap “backup to Google Drive”. The data backup will start instantly.

  • Now, you need to use a USB cable to connect your Android device to a computer. Copy the LINE backup folder from the Android device to the computer.
  • On your iPhone, you need to download the Google Drive app. Login to Google Drive on your iPhone to view the previously uploaded chat history of LINE on the device.

Like the second method, you cannot access the LINE chats directly on the LINE app on your new iPhone. Therefore, you cannot use the chats to continue conversations with your friends and family on the LINE app.


In a nutshell, you can use any of the three methods above to transfer your LINE chat history from an Android device to your new iPhone. However, transferring your LINE chat history through email and Google Drive cannot allow you to access it directly via the LINE app. This means that Tenorshare WhatsApp Transfer Transfer is the only reliable app for the direct transfer of LINE chats from an Android phone to an iPhone.

Therefore, we recommend that you download this app today and start using it to transfer the chat history of different messaging apps from one device to another.
