Almost a year ago, Apple told us about a function that allows you to synchronize messages between iOS devices and Mac computers. For some reason, Apple always hesitated to release the long-awaited option until this week. Now, users finally have the opportunity to try this functionality.
“iCloud Messages” is an option that allows you to store all received and sent SMS/iMessage messages in the Apple’s cloud storage called iCloud. The conversation is synchronized between all devices that use the same Apple ID account. Security is provided with reliable End-to-End encryption, so you do not have to worry about the security of your personal data.
Before you start, you need to make sure that your version of iOS 11.4 or later is installed on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. In the case of Mac computers, the operating system version must be at least macOS High Sierra 10.13.5. In addition, you need a two-factor authentication. This is a prerequisite for enabling the option.
Follow the below steps to enable the iCloud Messages:
- Go to “Settings”.
- Go to your profile Apple ID.
- Then choose “iCloud”.
- Activate the function by toggling the switch in front of the “Message” to green.
That’s it. You have successfully activated the iCloud Messages. Enjoy seamless sharing of your messages across all iCloud enabled Apple devices.
