How to backup & restore favorite stickers in WhatsApp

I need to switch to new iPhone but I have lots of favorite tagged stickers in WhatsApp. I need to transfer them to my new device.How can i do that? Please help.

- Question from Apple Community

Without emojis, texting is boring and bland! Given how frequently people use emojis to add meaning and fun to their texts, WhatsApp introduced the stickers features, which elevated messaging to a new level.

Since then, several sticker packs have been released, and WhatsApp users are competing to see who has the best collection. Everything is fun until you need to replace your phone!

This includes backing up your WhatsApp conversations, contacts, media, and, of course, stickers. Because you don't want to lose the collection you've worked so hard to curate! Follow this guide to know how to backup stickers on WhatsApp on iPhone.

Does WhatsApp backup include stickers?

The answer to the question - does WhatsApp backup include stickers is, of course, YES! Generally speaking, when you backup WhatsApp chat in iPhone via a WhatsApp tool, all conversations, contacts, media files, as well as stickers will be backed up by default. That’s to say, all you need to consider is to choose a satisfying backup software to assist you.

How to backup WhatsApp stickers to iCloud

When it comes to backing up data on iPhone, iCloud may be the first tool that comes into your mind. Indeed, in the WhatsApp app, you can have iCloud back up WhatsApp separately, in which your favorite WhatsApp stickers will be backed up at the same time.

Preparation prior to the backup process
Check that you have enough free space in iCloud, which should be at least twice the size of the WhatsApp data you're about to backup.

You should also ensure that you are using the same phone number in WhatsApp and iCloud.

Steps to backup WhatsApp stickers on iPhone via iCloud
Step 1. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Tap [your name] iCloud > Turn on iCloud Drive and WhatsApp if they are not enabled.

Step 2. Open WhatsApp on your iPhone > Go to its Settings Chats > Chat Backup.
