Step 3: Select Messages

In the iMazing app, click on the “Messages” tab in the left sidebar. This will display all of the text conversations on your iPhone.

Step 4: Choose Conversations

Select the specific conversations that you want to export as PDF files. You can select multiple conversations by holding down the Ctrl key (Windows) or Command key (Mac) while clicking on each conversation.

Step 5: Export as PDF

With the desired conversations selected, click on the “Export as PDF” button located at the bottom of the iMazing window. Choose a location on your computer where you want to save the PDF files and click “Save”.

  • iMazing also offers other export options such as HTML, CSV, and TXT if you prefer a different file format.

Step 6: Access Your PDF Files

Once the export process is complete, navigate to the location on your computer where you saved the PDF files. You can now open and view them using any PDF reader software.

Step 7: Organize and Share

If you want to organize your exported text messages, you can create folders and subfolders to categorize them. This can be helpful if you have a large number of conversations that you want to keep organized for future reference.

Additionally, you can easily share these PDF files with others via email or cloud storage platforms such as Dropbox or Google Drive. This way, you can conveniently access your text messages from any device or share them with others when needed.
