Trapped in iPhone 4 and WhatsApp, need help to escape

by Mikhail Vladimirov   Last Updated April 15, 2019 10:12 AM

I have an iPhone 4 with WhatsApp messenger installed. The iPhone doesn't update anymore, works deadly slow, and does not have any free space. WhatsApp also does not update anymore, because newer WhatsApp versions require newer version of iOS, which in turn will require me to get a new iPhone.

My WhatsApp conversations contain information that I cannot afford to loose, that's why I cannot just drop this iPhone.

Recent versions of WhatsApp allow synchronizing conversation history via iCloud, but my version is too old and lacks this feature.

I was able to save photo and video files from WhatsApp conversations into iPhone, and then download them to PC via USB cable, but now I cannot do this because iPhone has zero free space, and I cannot free it (this is subject for another question). Also, this approach does not work for text messages.

Situation becomes worse with each passing day, because as long as I cannot migrate WhatsApp to another smartphone, I keep receiving important information on this iPhone where it become trapped.

Any help would be appreciated.
