Hi Guys, I just backed up my WhatsApp chat history to iTunes. Is there any way I can check and edit the saved history on my laptop? In other words where is it saved? Hope to find an answer to my questions please. Thanks to everyone get in touch with this.
iTunes backups are not designed to be viewable or editable, and we don’t have any response from Apple with regards to this issue. Yes, it is frustrating. Thus backups done through iTunes require third-party software to view/extract the contents. Here we are going to recommend iFonebox to you, which is a professional and easy to use backup extractor that can help you easily view WhatsApp messages stored in iTunes.
