It’s quite troublesome to find one specific WhatsApp message on iPhone among thousands of them. And the growing number of WhatsApp messages take up huge space on my iPhone 8, so I’m searching for ways to export these WhatsApp messages from iPhone 6 and then delete them on iPhone in order to free up more storage on my iPhone 6 as well as read them whenever I want. Is there any advice?

Just like this user said, exporting WhatsApp messages from iPhone is a pretty good solution in such case. But we all know that there is no option to let you do that in WhatsApp. And iTunes/iCloud backup will pack WhatsApp messages to the backup file, which will never allow viewing these messages in backup as you want. That’s why we recommend a comprehensive tool to help you make it.
