It's scary when you find your phone falls into a tub of water, gets malfunctioning due to a Trojan invasion, or stumbles during a software update but you haven't made any backup of your important data such as the photos on WhatsApp. Even creepier, the masses of photos gradually eat up your iPhone space. Seemly to backup WhatsApp photos and migrating them to your computer can be a great way to protect your data and free up some iPhone space.

Must-Have Tool to Backup WhatsApp Photos and Videos

MacX MediaTrans - 100% Safe and No Storage Limits

▶ Selectively back up WhatsApp photos from iPhone to computer.
▶ Export and convert HEIC to JPG for viewing on non-Apple devices.
▶ Fast speed. Backing up 100 4k photos on WhatsApp takes only 8 seconds.
▶ Transfer videos, music, iTunes movies, ebooks between iPhone/iPad and computer.

iCloud knows the crux. You can make a backup of WhatsApp photos as long as you set up an automatic backup (Go to iPhone's Settings > iCloud > Backup > turn on iCloud Backup > next you need to go to WhatsApp and open it > Settings > Chat Settings > Chat Backup > tap on Back Up Now or turn on Auto Backup). The WhatsApp photos will be backed up onto iCloud daily, weekly or monthy as per your needs. However, there is a U-turn. iCloud backup is bound to many limits and problems:

1. There is only 5GB free iCloud storage for WhatsApp photos or other media files backup. Roughly 333 4K photos will use up 5GB storage, let along the high-quality videos. This leads to iCloud storage full problem easily.
2. To backup WhatsApp photos with iCloud doesn't necessarily mean a safeguard against any sudden deletion of photos from your iPhone. iCloud backup just ensures a temporary backup of WhatsApp photos or other files. If you delete the photos from iPhone, so does it on iCloud.
3. iCloud just makes a whole backup of WhatsApp photos by day, week and month. You have no choice to make a selective backup of WhatsApp photos.
