Almost a year ago, at the presentation of iOS 11, we were told about a function that allows you to synchronize messages between iOS devices and Mac computers. For some reason, Apple has always put off the release of the long-awaited option. Only this week, users finally had the opportunity to test this function.
“Messages in iCloud” is an option that allows you to store all received and sent SMS / iMessage messages in the cloud storage iCloud. Correspondence is synchronized between all devices that use the same Apple ID account. Security is provided by reliable end-to-end or end-to-end encryption, so you do not have to worry about the security of your personal data.
Before you begin, you need to make sure that your version of iOS 11.4 and 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, two-factor authentication is required – this is a prerequisite for enabling the option.
- We find it on the Settings desktop.
- Go to your Apple ID profile.
- Next, select “iCloud”.
- Activate the toggle switch in front of the “Message.”
Connect to the Wi-Fi network for primary synchronization of messages. Everything is ready!
