I don't often use iMessage on my Mac, so I had not realized that I had been signed out of the account for a few months. Because of this, there is at least 3 months of messages that exist only on my iPhone and iPad that I am hoping can be transferred onto my Mac. Does anyone know if this is at all possible? I am okay with using a third party software to do so. I have an iPhone 6S and a late 2011 MacBook Pro both running the latest software. iPhone 6s, iOS 9.3.1
The question here is quite clear: how to transfer iMessages from iPhone to Mac? We all know that when signing in the same Apple account on both iPhone and Mac, those imessages will be synchronized between them. But just as the user said that he signed out he account for a few months and now, he wanted to save those imessages from iPhone to Mac. Is that possible? Is there any chance to export iPhone imessages to Mac? Definitely yes. Just as mentioned, you need to transfer iMessages from iPhone to Mac within the help from a third party software--iFonebox.
