Two ways 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 you can send across iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Mac.
- Text 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 your wireless carrier provides.
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 a 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, which is also helpful to transfer files from iPhone to PC.
