How can I view and print my iPhone text messages on my computer for free?

Sometimes, it is necessary for us to view, search, and print iPhone text messages on the computer. While the problem is how export iPhone text messages in a readable way. Mostly, when we talk about this issue, iTunes will be the first thought but not the best.

Why is iTunes not the best choice?

You can't view and manage the message backup using iTunes, as it is unreadable.

iTunes acts as a bridge between iOS devices and PCs for daily data transfer and backup. Although you can use it to back up iOS data to the computer, the exported files are not in a viewable and editable format. When you create an iPhone backup using iTunes, your text messages are saved to your computer, but they are semi-encrypted by Apple technology. Then you can't open, view, let alone bring them out. If you have to, you need to pay for an iTunes extractor tool to achieve the purpose.

What if you don't want to use iTunes nor to buy a program, what is the better way to view iPhone text messages on PC or Mac? Read on and get answers.
