    The messages I've sent to others from my iPhone won't show up on my Mac or iPad and Apple Watch, but yet they still receive messages.

    So I turned off my iMessages on all devices and I had to reactivate text message forwarding, but neither devices would show the pin code I needed to activate it on my iPhone?

    Can anyone help?! This is really inconvenient and frustrating...

    Sometimes when turning on my MacBook or iMac after a while it takes 5min or sometimes more for all the new messages made to update. let it sit on for a bit and you should start seeing it update to current spot in your text conversations. Though since you attempted to reset it up with new codes you will get spammed also with code pop ups over and over (which by then all expired) until you can get a new code in real time.

    It's happened to me once before and I had to spend like 10mins clicking through all the expired code pop ups. Lesson learned. Just let it sit for a bit and it should just update and don't try to redo the code setup.
