Want to sync all the text messages so that you can have multiple backups and you can transfer and restore them to new iPhone freely. Besides, you don’t need to panic when your messages get lost or deleted accidentally. Now let’s get down to the different three ways to accomplish the mission of transferring text messages.
Sync iPhone Text Messages to iTunes
To sync text messages to iTunes, you need to perform a backup.
Here are the detailed steps.
> Open iTunes and connect your device to your computer.
> Save content that you downloaded from the iTunes Store or App Store by clicking File > Devices >
> You can either encrypt your backup: Select the box called Encrypt [device] backup and make a memorable password or simply make a backup that isn’t encrypted simply through clicking Back Up Now.
> After the process ends, you can see if your backup finished successfully in iTunes Preferences >Devices.
> You should see the name of your device with the date and time that iTunes created the backup.
After the backup is created, all your text messages have been synced to iTunes, you can use a third party app like iExplorer to view your text messages.
With the backup file, you can either sync all the messages to any ios device you have or to newly-purchased iPhone.
Sync iPhone Text Messages to iCloud
By the same token, you need to create an iCloud backup to sync all the text messages to iCloud. Here is how.
> Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
> In iOS 8 or later, tap Settings > iCloud > Backup. Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.
> Tap Back Up Now. Stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until the process completes.
> Make sure the backup finished by tapping Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your device.
> The backup you just made should appear in the details with the time and backup size.
Now, you can download the text messages from iCloud backup file for saving or transferring.
Sync iPhone Text Messaegs to Computer
With professional iPhone data recovery software, you can sync all the text messages to computer selectively. Here in this post I would like to take iFonebox for demonstration.
Below are the detailed steps.
> Install and run iFonebox on your computer.
Note: iFonebox is available for both Windows and Mac, please choose the right version to download and install.
> Connect your iPhone to your computer and click Start after your iPhone is recognized by iFonebox.
> Choose text messages to scan selectively by clicking on the icon of messages from the interface listing all the supported data categories.
Note:The data scanning and analyzing will take quite a while if you have a large amount of text messages on your iPhone, please wait patiently.
> Preview all the exported messages items after the scanning process is completed. Select all or whatever you need to recover to your computer by clicking on “Recover to PC”.
