I logged out and in with iCloud on iPhone 7 but nothing. Same on iPad mini 2. :(

Public Beta 3 on both devices.

It was removed (I think) in developer beta 3, and probably is just showing up as gone in public beta 3 now. I don't know about others, but i didn't any noticeable difference, and I imagine it was removed for fixes. The sad thing for me is that Messages don't sync between iPhone and Mac anymore - my Mac messages are basically one month old and the "sync" doesn't do a thing.

You only see the sync button in the messages settings screen if the toggle for ‘messages’ is set on in the iCloud settings.

I’m not sure this is actually the case for everyone. Read many posts about flipping the switch but still no sync option like I have.

OP, it’s buggy. Good luck. PB4 in a few days.

No sync button.

Hope pb this evening though latest DV video mentions iCloud messages storing has been removed and will be re added via later or full ios11 version.

Looks to be working on PB4 but definitely hidden. Go to iCloud, manage and click on messages.

Screenshot file too large to upload.

As previous post no option to enable via settings messages including icloud as messages tab is since gone via pb4

So what is "removed" the interface option or the actual synching? Message in the cloud and synching is working for me PB4.
