The straightforward answer is that LINE does not offer this feature, and we do not think it has any plans to do so in the near future. Does it mean that all your chat history will be lost? No, because we have a trick up our sleeve to help you transfer LINE chat from Android to iPhone.

Can 'Move to iOS' Sync LINE Chats from Android to iOS?

The answer is 'No'. There is no way to transfer LINE chats from Android to iOS, at least officially. The option 'Move to iOS' will only move apps (without their data) from your Android to iOS. In other words, the LINE chats will not show up in your new iPhone.

As iOS and Android have different stores, you cannot recover the purchases either. So, if you have bought an app for your Android, you will need to repurchase it after switching to iPhone. The only way to escape it is by contacting the developer and hoping that they will approve your request. By now, you might be thinking of giving up, but we request that you do not. Why?
