How can you preserve text messages on your iPhone or Android device?

With all we do and store on our devices, we have so much to lose. If you don’t save things the right way, you’re one crash away from your files disappearing forever. Tap or click for ways to check if your computer’s hard disk is failing.

Not too long ago, an Instagram follower reached out to me because she lost every one of her text messages. That included a three-year thread with her husband, who just died. You can imagine the heartbreak.

Looking at your phone, there are messages you don’t want to lose. You can back them up using your phone’s native apps or go with a third-party option.

One great option for iPhone owners

Your iCloud account is powerful. It holds your messages, photos, mail, contacts, notes, passwords, and much more.

Messages in iCloud are updated automatically so that you can see them across all your devices. That means if your iPhone bites the dust, you’ll be able to access your messages on a Mac, iPad, or other Apple device with your Apple ID.

Just note, when you delete a message or conversation from one device, it disappears from your account altogether.

To ensure your messages are being saved, open Settings on your iPhone and tap your name. Then tap iCloud and toggle Messages On.

Tip in a Tip: Want to organize your iPhone apps? You don’t have to move them one at a time. Move multiple apps by long-pressing on one app with one finger, then use another finger to tap and drag another icon. Stack it on the first app you selected. Continue stacking apps. When you’re done, drag and drop the entire stack to wherever you want. Tap or click here for more smart iPhone tricks and tips.
