Question: Deleted one of my iMessages!

I made the mistake of deleting a single important iMessage conversation from my iPhone, and while I know the common solution is to restore from a backup, there might be another way. I have the contestation on my MacBook still. Is there any way I can get it back onto my laptop that way?

iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11.1

There is no way to import the conversation back onto the phone as a text or iMessage. The best that you could do is to create a text file, a pdf, or a photo and email it to yourself or if you create a text file or pdf, send it to the phone in a compatible app that will read and store the file.

Only by taking a screenshot or copying it and sending it to yourself.


I'm not in front of a Mac now but you can save a conversation from Messages on a Mac to a PDF. I believe it's just a matter of printing the conversation to PDF. You could then move that PDF to your iPhone for reference.
