When acquiring cloud backups, Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp can automatically extract WhatsApp databases from multiple devices registered to the same Apple ID.

Viewing, searching and filtering of extracted WhatsApp databases is available.
The built-in WhatsApp viewer enables viewing the content of multiple WhatsApp databases.
