    So message backup is available with 11.3

    I have different icloud and iMessage accounts. How does the 11.3 backup feature handle this?

    I also have different devices with same icloud but different iMessage accounts..

    Its not going to help you at all.

    It requires all devices to be on the same iCloud account.

    11.3 isn't going to have iCloud message support so you'll need to back the messages up on each device.

    iMessage in the cloud is tied to the iCloud account. Therefore if you are not using the iCloud account for iMessages. It cannot use iCloud messages.

    Granted this is moot as it has been removed but still.
