September 28 2017 00:34 am/ Post By Jeffrey to iPhone Transfer

SMS is one of the basic data types on iPhone. In daily life you may store some funny or significant messages from your family, friends or even business partners. In order to prevent them from being lost, most Apple users prefer to make a backup of iPhone SMS using iTunes or iCloud. There is no doubt that both of them are helpful ways. But there is also a big disadvantage - you can not directly read, edit, or print out the messages in the backup. 

For this situation, you'd better depend on some other ways to backup your data and fix the trouble that iTunes or iCloud may brought to you. In this tutorial, you will get a one-stop solution that allows you to transfer messages from iPhone to computer easily and save as TXT, HTML, Excel, or PDF file.
