When the iOS 10.3 was released, it came with a bunch of problems from the previous version fixed and a whole lot of new features added. One of the features added was the iOS 10.3 Text Message Forwarding on the iPhone
What is Text Message Forwarding?
Text message forwarding is a feature on the iPhone which allows you send an exact duplicate of a text message sent to your iPhone but not just that. All text messages received on your iPhone also appear on your Mac or iPad.
It is important that you note that for you to use the Text Message Forwarding feature on your iPhone, you need to use the same Apple ID on both devices (the sending device and the receiving device). FaceTime must be signed in with your Apple ID.
To use the Text Message Forwarding Feature on Mac or iPad, you need to add an email address to the iMessage app and then use FaceTime with your Apple ID/iCloud. If you are having problems activating Text Message Forwarding on your iPhone, follow the steps below.
How to Activate Text Message Forwarding on iOS 10.3
⦁ Go to Settings
⦁ Tap on Messages
⦁ Next, Tap on Send & Receive
⦁ Tap on “Use your Apple ID for iMessage.”
⦁ Type in your Apple ID username and password
⦁ Select an email on which to enable the feature
⦁ Tap on next
⦁ Go back to the iMessage section under Settings.
⦁ Messages open on the Mac or iPad automatically, and a one-time verification code is created.
