Question: Can I have older texts appear in Messages on a new Mac?
I am in the process of switching from a PC to a Mac. I've had an iCloud account for years for my iPhone and iPad. Can I transfer my text history (imessage and sms or just imessage is fine) into my messages app on the new computer? I can only find threads explaining how to move from mac to mac or third party options, which don't use the current message app. I know with a new iPhone or iPad, the message history transfers via iCloud, but I can't seem to figure out my options with a new Mac, when I am not transferring from another mac. I have a MacBook Air, running the latest update of High Sierra; iPhone and iPad are running the latest iOS and are backed up each night. Contacts, calendars, etc all appeared on the new computer when I signed into iCloud, just not messages. Thanks in advance.
MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)
