Question: Texts won’t sync


Can’t get all my texts to sync with my iPad from my iPhone. iOS 11 on both devices and signed into iCloud on both devices.

Hi ajogpz,

I understand that you'd like to set up your iPad to receive the texts you get on your iPhone. I know this is an important and convenient feature to use; I'm happy to help. I'd suggest following the steps below to ensure both devices are set up for text message forwarding:
  • On iPhone, go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive. Make sure that the Apple ID at the top of the screen is the same Apple ID that you're using for iMessage on your other devices. Add a check to your phone number and email address, so that you can be reached by iMessage at both. Do the same on your iPad or iPod touch.
  • On iPhone, go to Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding, then choose which devices to allow to send and receive text messages from this iPhone. If you're not using two-factor authentication for your Apple ID, a verification code appears on each of your other devices: enter that code on your iPhone.
Use Continuity to connect your Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch

Best Regards.
