If you are someone who has many Apple devices (like I do) one of the many great things is the ability to message across devices. Initially, I loved that you could send and receive iMessages one all your devices. From my MacBook, my iPad, AND my iPhone . . . how great is that! I’ll never miss a text! Unless it’s someone from an Android or other phone and then it is not an iMessage, it’s an SMS (text) message and I could only see that on my phone. Here’s what that looks like:
But then I learned there is a fix for that! You CAN get your sms messages on your other devices, not just your phone!!! Here’s how:
- go into settings on your iPhone, then “Messages”:
2. Select “text message forwarding”:
3. select the devices that are also signed in with your Apple ID that you want to forward to (in my case it’s my MacBook Pro and my iPad):
THAT’S IT!! Now you can receive not just iMessages, but all your texts on all of your devices!
You’re welcome. 🙂
