Finally, after a long wait, Apple rolled out iCloud support for its own Message App in iOS 11.4. This new feature will secure all your conversations, attachments and images shared in Message App. So here is how you can enable “Messages in Cloud” on your iPhone and Mac.

Once you sync Messages with iCloud in iOS 11.4 and macOS High Sierra, you can access those messages across your Apple devices like Mac and iPad. It also means you can check your SMS (and iMessages too) on other devices connected with iCloud. If you delete a message from iPhone, then it will be removed from other iOS devices as well.
