My iPhone 11 is on it's way from AT&T, I should have it on the 20th. I currently have an iPhone 6S.

I would like to have a fresh start so I am not going to restore the new iPhone11 from my old one. I will just install my apps fresh. My only concern is that I use this for business and have lots of text messages that I would like to save for future reference. Will they still be there int he Messages app when I set the new iPhone up with my Apple ID?
