How to Get iPhone Text Messages on Windows 10

Tioka updated on Aug 25, 2020 to iPhone Data Transfer | How-to Articles

Two ways for you to get iPhone messages (iMessage or Text Messages) on Windows 10.

Can You Get iPhone Messages on Windows 10

There are generally three types of messages on your iPhone, iMessage, text messages (SMS), and multimedia messages (MMS). For your information:

  • iMessages are texts, photos, or videos that you can send across iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Mac.
  • Text messages and multimedia messages are texts and photos that you can send to any other cell phone.

Besides, iMessages are sent over Wi-Fi or cellular data network while SMS or MMS requires a text-messaging plan, which is provided by your wireless carrier.

If you want to get your iPhone messages on Windows 10, it could be easy or difficult, depending on the type of message you want to transfer.

For example, if you want to sync iMessages to PC, it will be complex since iMessages are only supported on Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Mac. While if you want to save iPhone text messages to Windows 10, it could be easy for you to get things done with the help of an iPhone data transfer tool.

Here in this guide, I'd like to show you how to get iPhone text messages on Windows 10 with ease in two ways. One of them is also applicable to get iMessages on Windows 10.

Method 1. How to Get iPhone Text Messages on Windows 10

Bonus Tip: How to Save WhatsApp data on PC

Other than the built-in messaging utility on your iPhone, some of you may also use the popular messaging app -  WhatsApp. If you also want to transfer WhatsApp chats to your computer, you can export your WhatsApp messages, either with or without media, via the feature provided by the app or use a third-party tool to back up your WhatsApp data to PC all at once. For more details, refer to the guide on how to back up WhatsApp from iPhone to PC.

The Bottom Line

It's relatively easy to get text messages from your iPhone to Windows 10. If you want to sync iMessages from iPhone to PC, there is no safe way for you to do it other than send the texts using method 2. While if you'd like to copy multimedia messages, you can find some third-party software tool that supports the transfer of MMS to help.
