Here's hoping they finally got it sorted, cant wait for this.
I’ve been patiently wishing iCloud texts return.
It's not coming in 11.0.
Pretty disappointing but I'm sure it's for good reason - security issue?
Probably just being cautious. It's something you don't want to screw up. Suddenly almost every iPhone is going to have years of of messages backed up at the same time.
Yeah not via tonight’s GM build
Very true.. and the attachments
Remember when Apple launched iOS 10.3.2 and the new APFS, millions of iPhones file system upgraded, without losing a single bit of data, THAT was huge, they are going to be very careful as usual
I really, really need this.
This, and only this, is the reason I restore my new iPhones from a full and complete backup, instead of just downloading my settings from iCloud and starting fresh
I have 6 years of texts there and I don't feel like losing them just because Apple puts out a new operating system and won't let us back them up individually.
Anyone have any ideas of how I could manage the upcoming release? I am switching my iPhone 6S (which barely functions) for an iPhone 8. I do not want to lose a single iMessage. That is my only concern.
Backup your phone once you get iOS 11, then restore that backup in the new iPhone 8, this is because iPhone 8 will come only with iOS 11, therefore, 10.3.3 backups are not compatible with it
Yes they are. majority of people are going to backup their current phones, which are on 10.3.3 to the cloud, purchase new device on Friday, and restore the device to that back up
I've done that many of times over the years.
Backup and restore is the only way. My only concern is that your 6S barely functions. My 6+ was slow to the point of being unusable, but restoring from backup did not fix the problem—I had to set it up as new. I think something was corrupt.
I have a Mac with all my messages, so I think/hope they’ll get synced when this gets released. May be an option for you if you have another iMessage device.
What is wrong with your 6s that it barely functions?
All you have to do is restore a backup from the old device as usual.
This is NOT true. You can restore a backup from previous versions of iOS, sometimes even from newer versions if it's a small update.
I'm sorry, I meant iOS 11 not compatible with 10.3.3, my mind was not clear LOL
I used to work as a photographer and have about 75,000 photos. I decided to put all my data in iCloud instead of continuing to rely on expensive failing external HDs.
This works great on my mac. But the 64gb 6s basically can't properly manage the "optimized library" and consistently jacks up its library size until I've got about 600mb of space on my phone, at which point it slows to a crawl.
I've documented this on Apple forums and here but it's never been solved. Optimize storage is one of the biggets Apple fails I have ever seen
Are all txts backed up or only imessages?
I’m certain text messages were being backedup via icloud in earlier pb.
It was an amazing new feature at the time.
Seems Apple are behind implementing new features via GM+tonights io11 release.
2 features I wanted haven’t yet made it.
!. Text messages via icloud.
2. Apple pay via messages.
Anyone know if the messages will count toward iCloud storage? I don’t think other accounts count to storage but that might be because I have very little content..
I think it does,
Who cares lol just give me the feature. Once I get it every single time I would set my phone as new instead of restoring from backup. I would set it up as new and restore messages and just download apps manually I don't mind that.
Yeah everything will be internet/sync based. It will be nice if I don’t need to get a storage plan but I know what Tim wants
From what I recall, it did ... but it was beta so who knows what the future will bring.
FWIW my 7 year iPhone text library is just over a gigabyte. So it should not be a huge hurdle for most free plans.
It can vary depending on how many memes you send! lol photos have the potential to take up a lot of space.
