iOS Users Can Now Store Messages In iCloud. Here’s How You Turn It On.

If you upgraded to iOS 11.4 yesterday, you got a really useful feature that allows you to store messages in iCloud. What that means is that if you receive a message on one device, it shows up everywhere for that account. If you delete a message on one device, it goes away on (almost) every device.

Here’s how you enable it:

  1. Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 11.4 or later
  2. Open Settings
  3. Tap [Your Name] or Sign in to iCloud
  4. Tap iCloud
  5. Check that Messages is toggled on. It should look like this:

This feature is also going to be on macOS 10.13.5 whenever that ships. It’s not on Apple Watch 4.3.1, At least not yet.

UPDATE: This feature is now available in macOS 10.13.5. Here’s how you turn it on.
