seems must via a PC ?

No. There is a Mac version too.

so no WM10 to iPhone?

WM10 is not popular and no mobile device experts have tested or will test a method yet. There are old methods which do not work now.

I am using 950XL, developer mode is unlocking the phone ? <- I cannot verify the exact steps required without having a Windows 10 Mobile phone on hand.

The most difficult part is to unlock your phone to get the .db file. You might need to get another Windows Mobile phone which is not x50 series and migrate the whatsapp data to such phone before migrating to Android phone.

what is x50 ? I have 950XL .

Nokia Lumia x50 series include the following models:-

Lumia 550      Lumia 650      Lumia 950      Lumia 950 XL

Some forums say that Nokia Lumia x50 series can still be unlocked but there are risks involved which will brick the phone.

that phone I will not use anymore, so I don't think I will concern the risk! I will try to destroy it once migration is done !

or I will isolate it so that I can show that out in my computer museum when I got old ....... AHHAAH

change to developer mode is unlock ?

"Some forums say that Nokia Lumia x50 series can still be unlocked but there are risks involved which will brick the phone." <- It means not only you cannot use the phone anymore but also cannot get any data out of it.

change to developer mode is unlock ? <- No. You need to install third-party software.

If you want to proceed, it is better not to do it on your own. It is difficult even for experts.
