Have you ever wondered whether you can access iPhone information on Mac?Thanks to the Apple ecosystem, syncing information between iPhone and Mac is a piece of cake.

This clever little trick not only lets you view messages, but also lets you send them directly from your Mac.Now, let us take a look at how to get iPhone information on Mac.


What is needed to sync iPhone information to Mac?

There are several ways you can use Apple's Continuity feature with your iPhone and Mac.Hardware and software requirements vary depending on the continuity feature you want to use.

To sync the Messages app on your iPhone to your Mac, first make sure both devices are signed in to the same Apple ID.Then, check whether Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are enabled on your iPhone and Mac.

You should also make sure that all email addresses and phone numbers you use to send and receive messages are enabled on both devices (more on that below) so your messages can be synced.

Configure iMessage settings on iPhone to sync text messages

To start syncing iPhone messages to Mac, you must configure the settings of the Messages app.Go to "Settings" > "Messages" and make sure iMessage is activated.If it's not activated, switch it to active and wait a few minutes.

Click "Send & Receive" below.Under "You can receive and reply to iMessages," select your phone number, Apple ID, and any other email address you want to use for iMessage.

Under "Start a new conversation from," select your mobile phone number, unless you want to use your email address on iMessage to send new messages.Look at the Apple ID at the bottom and make sure you are using the same Apple ID on your Mac.




The above steps can only sync iMessage between devices.If you want to send and receive regular SMS and MMS messages sent to your iPhone on your Mac, you must enable "SMS Forwarding".To do this, go to Settings > SMS Forwarding.Toggle the switch next to your Mac to allow it to send and receive iPhone messages.
