Or in another case, you have bought a new iPhone X and want to transfer messages from old iPhone to a computer so that you can restore the iPhone to factory settings later and give it to your younger brother. Or maybe you have just encountered the lack of storage space and need to copy SMS from iPhone to PC to free up more available space.
