WhatsApp is a very popular app for iPhone users to send messages. 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 WhatsApp messages, I strongly recommend you try Dr.Fone - WhatsApp Transfer (iOS). It is able to export and print 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! If you want to directly print WhatsApp pictures from iPhone, you can also use an iPhone photo printer to get it done!

Part 3: Print WhatsApp messages from an iCloud backup file

Step 1 Download iCloud backup file

In the main window, click Recover from iCloud Backup File on the top of the program. And then you're required to enter your iCloud account. Feel free to do that. Dr.Fone doesn't collect any of your information, but helps to find your iCloud backup files. When all iCloud backup files are listed, choose the one that contains the WhatsApp messages that you need to print to download.
