How to Print WhatsApp Messages from iPhone 6s
Thanks to WhatsApp, we are able to keep in touch with friends, families and even strangers. We might send and receive quite a bunch of messages on WhatsApp and never get tired of it. However, though we can easily move, copy and print text on Mac or PC, it seems a bit difficult and complicated to do so directly on iPhone, for there is no option for users to export WhatsApp chats as a file to print.
Would you take screenshots for each screen of WhatsApp Messages and then print them out?
That seems plausible but amusing, doesn't it? It's really time-consuming and burdensome. If
you'd like to do so, you'd better try the following methods instead.
- Method 1: Directly Scan and Print WhatsApp Messages
- Method 2: Extract and Print WhatsApp Messages from iTunes Backups
- Method 3: Extract and Print WhatsApp Messages from iCloud Backups

Step 1. Scan WhatsApp Messages on iPhone
Download and install iPhone Data Recovery on the computer in the first place. After that, please launch the software and get your iPhone connected to it with USB cable.

Method 3: Extract and Print WhatsApp Messages from iCloud Backups
Many users might not know that iCloud backups actually include app data like WhatsApp, Viber, Kik and Line. Therefore, it's also highly likely to download those app data from iCloud.
Step 1. Enter iCloud Account
Run iPhone Data Recovery at first. Next, head to "Recover from iCloud Backup File". Now, you will be prompted to log in your iCloud account. In order to get access to and download files from iCloud, this step is a must. The software will no record or save any personal information, so you can be reassured.
Step 2. Download WhatsApp Messages
After you log in your iCloud account, iCloud backups will be listed on the software. Please select one and hit the "Download" button. Then, a pop up will show up prompting you to select types of data to download. Please highlight "WhatsApp" and tap "Next" to begin downloading.
Step 3. View and Print WhatsApp Chats
Now, you will be able to preview all the WhatApp messages stored on the iCloud. After that, please choose one or multiple WhatsApp messages and hit the "Printer-like" icon on the upper right. Then, you will have a copy of your WhatsApp conversations.
