Does that mean we can sync iMessages between iPhone and MacBook just like Notes, Reminders, calendars? Even if we set up iPhone as new, as soon as we sign in to iCloud in iPhone we get all the messages back automatically???There's phoneview - or if you are using a mac, open Messages, the ones I use the most seen to show for me.
so that I can restore my phone as new?
Apple needs to let you sync your messages like they do with calendar, reminders etcThats a confusing phrase.
Can you restore your phone with the messages that were on it when backed up? Yes.
Can you set your phone up as new and will the messages sync down when iMessage logs in? No
Is there a way to backup the iMessage messages on the iPhone? No
Is there a way to backup your iMessages on your iMac to move them to a new Mac or restore them to your Mac? Yes (Baskup will enable this for instance)
