Hi, I really need to export messages, those will maintain dates and times. This is a large amount of messages so a simple screenshot is not sufficient. How can I export a message conversation to a text file? Help please!
How to export messages from iPhone to mac for safe keeping and printing? Apple does not provide a process or app to enable an iPhone owner to export messages in an independent data file. According to the tradition methods, you can copy and paste each message, or you might consider screen shots of the messages and then you would have PNG files. However, if you have some long conversations, copy and pasty would take long, so it’s necessary to find an efficient way to easily transfer texts from iPhone to Mac. Fortunately, iFonebox can do that for you. The following are some of the main features of the program:
- It allows you to retrieve up to 17 different types of files such as text messages, photos, videos, contacts, reminders, call logs, WeChat data, WhatsApp data and more
- You can easily recover/transfer data in a few simple clicks
- The unique preview function allows users to see all the recoverable data
- It gives users the unique ability to extract data selectively
- It’s completely safe and protect your personal information
- Apply to almost all kinds of iOS devices and iOS versions
Actually, iFonebox can do far more than that. We all know that we can only backup our iPhone in iTunes/iCloud. Although, the backup includes the messages, you do not have a way to view or export them from iTunes without restoring the whole backup. With the help of iFonebox, you’re able to choose content to recover from that backup without losing any current data on your device!
Before we start the instructions, you need to download the program to your computer. iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to install the right version for your computer. Once you have installed the program, next I will show you how to download iPhone texts to mac without much effort.
