Yup but a huge PITA (programs cost money, slow etc..)

Not to mention google gives android users unlimited backup via GDrive, while at apple it takes up valuable room in ones meager icloud

I'm definitely switching from Note 9 to IPhone 12 the question is now will I have 6 years of messages, vn, and media, or not. It would nice to have it. I'm willing to pay a couple of dollars and a few hours of my time. It would be helpful if anyone had such an experience

Poor you🤦‍♂️

As a piece of advice I'd keep the files from whatsapp on the note 9 backed up separately, unless your going to pay for a higher level of iCloud (a path with no return :P)

As for your question at hand GIYF (With all possible abbreviations :) )

Won't be using Icloud for anything besides for Whats App. I doubt I'll need more than the minimum amount of space they offer.

Are you including all the biden gaffe videos I don't need? Once a month I go through my media delete 95% of media, and transfer useful media to SD Card. Right now I just have chats, voice notes, and audio, totalling about 3gb.

There is now a large media cleanup tool built into WhatsApp, as well as an interesting disappearing messages feature

Is there any way to get rid of the pop-up to rate the phone call after doing a WhatsApp call?

As some would say:
Settings > apps > whatsapp > uninstall  ;)
