Can I Print Some WhatsApp Messages on iPhone?

"I really need to print some messages on my iPhone WhatsApp for a legal case. Is this possible?"

WhatsApp is a very popular app for iPhone users to send messages. More and more people get WhatsApp installed on their iPhone and chat with friends over Internet data or Wi-Fi without having to pay for SMS. Sometimes you might want to extract and print WhatsApp messages on iPhone for a court or something.

However, unlike on a PC, users can copy and print messages easily. On iPhone, there is no option for users to export WhatsApp messages as a file to print. Some people suggest take screenshots of WhatsApp chat history and then print these screenshots. I have to say that it takes a lot of time to take screenshots and the messages are not continuous when printed out. To print iPhone WhatsApp messages, I strongly recommend you try third party tool.

With the help of iOSMate Data Recovery, it is able to export WhatsApp messages from your iPhone, iTunes backup file or iCloud backup file as printable HTML or XML files on your computer. You can download the software to have a try!
