Activating Text Message Forwarding Feature On Apple iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus

The new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus comes with a lot of great features, one of them is the Text Message Forwarding feature. The job of the Text Message Forwarding feature is that it copies text messages that have been sent to your iPhone device in the Messages app on your other iOS devices.

However, it’s important to point out that for you to use this feature, you must be using the same Apple ID details on both devices for the feature to work correctly. Also, your FaceTime service must be logged in with your Apple ID.

To be able to use the Text Message Forwarding on the Mac or iPad, you will need to provide an email account to your iMessage, and your FaceTime must be connected with your Apple ID/iCloud service. You can make use of the tips below if you are interested in knowing how you can enable the Text Message Forwarding feature on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
