The instructions for a tool to move WhatsApp messages from Android to iOS say that I need to install:

* `Whatsapp.ipa` of the same version (google will help)

Whatsapp.ipa appears to be the app itself. How do I locate it? After backing up an iPhone using iTunes on a Mac, only the data seem to be in ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup (with coded filenames). The apps do not seem to be there (as would be expected; that would be wasted storage).

A comment below this answer suggests that it's somewhere under ~/Library, but

> find ~/Library/Group\ Containers -name "*what*" -print

yields nothing.

(I'm working my way through this problem.)

    You can install the old but still available version of iTunes that supports apps here: support.apple.com/en_AU/downloads/itunes. All my apps are in /Users/[ME]/Music/iTunes/Mobile Applications. However you should be able to install it the regular way (unless I am missing something in your question) the normal way, via the app store. – Steve Chambers Jan 1 '18 at 23:00
