For a while now I'm looking for such a tool, for my iPhone. I know this is a Android forum but I was still wondering if it would be very difficult to "adjust" this tool to work for the ChatStorage.sqlite database in iOS?

Yes, there is a possibility. The "old" version of this tool works with Whatsapp for Iphone:

However, it doesn't support the new features yet, that's to say displaying smileys, images, videos, and so on.

The developer Fabio Sangiacomo told me that he is working on a new version of the Iphone Whatsapp Backup Extractor. This will be compatible as well with Iphone and Android Version of Whatsapp databases and will have all the features of my Android Version (e.g., displaying smileys, images, and so on).

That is good news!
I just read that the developer of iTwin is also working on implementing Facebook and WhatsApp output in his (Windows) program.

Ah, interesting.
Have you tried the 1.0 version of Whatsapp Extractor with your iPhone whatsapp backup files?

Lightbulb How to open and convert a crypted whatsapp database backup (msgstore.db.crypt)

CRYPTED WHATSAPP DATABASE

If you only have a backup in the crypted format from /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases/msgstore.db.crypt then you need to decrypt the database at first.

At the moment, this can only be done by reinstalling whatsapp. If the backup is present in the mentioned folder on the SD, then you will be asked to import the backup. However, the backup can be from a totally different phone number / whatsapp account.

After installing and importing the backup, access the database files as explained above (1. and 2.).

You don't need an android phone for this, can use Bluestacks Emulator for Windows. Make sure to root Bluestacks, using this guide:

Here it isn't working i have the unencrypted file, placed in the same folder as whatsapp_xtract.py and .bat and three folders, the bat appears for a second and it pop away.
What i'm doing wrong?
Edit: Getting error: This file is encrypted or not a database.
But it isn't a db.crypt file.
