    Anyone think 10.13.5 will be released today? All the other OSes (iOS, TV, and watchOS) has been updated accordingly today.

    I hope so - want Messages on the Cloud because the bulk of my messages/texts are on my Mac, since 2014!

    Why do I feel like this whole Messages-in-the-Cloud thing feels like Lucy, Charlie Brown, and the football?

    It doesn’t make sense for Apple not to release The high Sierra update at the same time, considering messages in iCloud is a universal feature.

    Probably being held back for those recently discovered CPU exploits.

    Hmm, the iTunes update usually coincides with the release of the new OS or shortly thereafter. I don't recall ever seeing it come before an OS update?

    I've downloaded and installed it.

    This is very likely, especially if the Varient 4 vulnerability fix is already in place and is being tested.

    I turned on Messages on my iPhone iCloud settings. Now I look at iCloud on the Mac and no Messages tab, but Messages is now taking up space in my iCloud storage (maybe it always was, didn't look before).

    10.13.5 might be a feature release as WWDC is next week.

    Yes how will we survive without this functionality. Simply barbaric.

    While us Apple savvy users know the functionality (Messages in iCloud) isn't released for MacOS yet, the fact Apple released a supporting document on the day 11.4 was released, providing instructions on how to enable this on your Mac (which you are unable to do so yet) seems to have caused enough confusion on these forums. I can't even imagine how annoyed Applecare support must be.

    They really should have just held 11.4 back for the MacOS release.

    Agree. AirPort2 isn't there yet, so my stereo Home Pods can only be played one at a time now from the Mac. iTunes 12.7.5.9 didn't seem to do much.

    Yep, exactly what I was referring to above.

    I'm also curious insofar as to how this functionality works. Beyond flipping a switch in iCloud in iOS 11.4, there really doesn't seem to be a great way to "control" or set the syncing, or monitor the status of the sync.. or something is just broken on my phone :)

    I haven't updated to 11.4 yet because of this exact reason. If I can't have them synced across devices, I don't see the point in updating to 11.4. The only logical reasons I can think that they delayed 10.13.5 are: Spectre Variant 4 and/or keeping the server loads focused on 11.4 and then releasing 10.13.5 today. When they do both on the same day, they seem to have issues with updates taking forever or never loading.

    During WWDC? Would be a shame as I mostly waited for my Mac messages to be synchronized through iCloud....

    You can update to 11.4 now and either enable Messages in iCloud or not. You're not obligated to use it, so I don't see any reason to wait. I enabled it in iOS and it hasn't changed how it Messages works in macOS.

    I'm wondering how it's going to sync if you have turned on Messages in iCloud on your iDevices and then delete a message? What will be considered the master?

    The Master? That's really going to be the cloud.

    or

    Which ever device you are using at the moment when deleting. For me, the whole point is to be able to permanently delete it from all devices at once, regardless of which device your using at the moment.

    from what I have noticed it uploads all your messages from all your devices, in my case iPhone and iPad, and then downloads the missing messages to the device they are missing from so you start with all your messages on all your devices

    you can then delete the ones you don't want and it will update your master in the iCloud so if you add another device ie a Mac it will upload the messages on it to the cloud and then force download them to you iPhone/ipad and also download the master to the Mac

    hope that makes sense
