Hi! Wouldn't it be great if Apple introduced iCloud Message Library (IML)? Similar to iCloud Photo Library (IPL) but for text messages? All text messages and iMessages would be stored in your iCloud so if you ever get a new device (be it a Mac, iPhone or iPad), signing into IML would bring all your previous messages to that new device. Currently when you sign into iCloud, only new messages will be "synced" to that device (unless it was sent to that specific device), for instance a Mac will only get the messages sent to your iPhone number from the moment you install the Mac. Another advantage it would bring is to be able to use the "Optimise storage" feature, currently existing in IPL, meaning it could download just the conversation title (name of contact) and not all the messages in it, unless you open the conversation. And when it's opened, only the most recent will download first unless you scroll up the history of the conversation. This would also mean "true syncing" between all your devices. Currently if you go on vacation and leave your Mac at home (unpowered), is away for a few weeks and then come back home, power up your Mac, it won't sync all your messages you received to your phone while you were away. This leads to gap in the conversations, some of the messages only being visible on some device, other messages only visible on another. I know people's probably biggest complaint against this idea would be privacy but it's probably easy to implement some encryption for the messages being stored in the iCloud. All in all, I would definitely enable this if it were an option. Also, it would of course be an opt-in/opt-out feature, like IPL. If you don't want to use it, the regular iCloud syncing and text-forwarding that exists today will be used!
