    I thought iMessages are in the iCloud? I wanted to setup my iPhone X as new and I signed into my iCloud account, but I don't see my iMessages on my iPhone X from my iPhone 7 Plus. Any ideas?

    iMessages in the cloud has not been released. During the summer Apple said it would come in a future update to iOS 11.
