    Does the new watch Os support messages in the cloud? I download both iOS 11.4 in my iPhone and the latest OS for my watch and my messages aren’t syncing..can’t find answer anywhere

    Message in iCloud is only for iOS and macOS. For Apple Watch, its not applicable. Basically, the messages etc are mirrored from iPhone to the Watch which doesn’t actively sync them if you ever delete a message from either, it wouldn’t delete it from the other device. It’s been an issue for a long time.

    That’s what I figured since there was no reference to the feature in the Watch OS write ups. Pretty glaring omission imo

    Well that is disappointing to hear. The only reason I was excited about messages in the cloud is because of the watch being a nightmare to delete messages from.

    Couldn’t agree more on this. It’s just ridiculous that my phone is paired with the watch yet when I delete a message on my phone, I have to manually (and it’s 2 steps btw) delete that same message from my watch. Talk about overkill ughhh

    Just goes to show no apple C-suite member is using their Apple watch for much other than showing it off. It would never have been allowed to work like this 5 years ago when Apple cared just a little bit about user experience

    turning off message in the cloud on my phone. only reason to turn it on was I thought it would sync with my watch. c'mon apple, at lease sync it over bluetooth.
