In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of getting non-iMessages on your Mac. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Enable Text Message Forwarding

If you want to receive non-iMessages on your Mac, the first step is to enable text message forwarding on your iPhone. To do this, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Select “Messages” from the menu.
  3. Tap on “Text Message Forwarding”.
  4. You will see a list of devices associated with your Apple ID. Find your Mac and toggle the switch next to it.

Note: Both your iPhone and Mac need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network for this feature to work.

Step 2: Check iMessage Settings on Your Mac

In order to receive non-iMessages on your Mac, you need to make sure that the correct settings are enabled. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Messages app on your Mac.
  2. In the menu bar, click on “Preferences”.
  3. Select the “Accounts” tab.
  4. Make sure that your Apple ID is listed and checked in the left-hand sidebar.
    • Note: If it’s not listed, click on the “+” button and sign in with your Apple ID.
  5. Under the “You can be reached for messages at” section, make sure your phone number is checked.

Step 3: Test Your Setup

Now that you have enabled text message forwarding on your iPhone and checked the iMessage settings on your Mac, it’s time to test if everything is working as expected. Follow these steps:

  1. On your iPhone, send a regular text message to someone.
  2. Check if the message appears on both your iPhone and Mac.
    • Note: It may take a few seconds for the message to appear on your Mac.

Troubleshooting Tips:

If you encounter any issues during the setup process, here are some troubleshooting tips to help you out:

  • Make sure both devices are connected to Wi-Fi: Text message forwarding requires both devices to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Make sure that Wi-Fi is turned on and that you are connected to a network.
  • Restart your devices: Sometimes a simple restart can fix any temporary glitches. Try restarting both your iPhone and Mac before attempting the setup process again.
  • Update your software: Ensure that both devices have the latest software updates installed. Outdated software can sometimes cause compatibility issues.
  • Contact Apple Support: If all else fails, reach out to Apple Support for further assistance. They will be able to troubleshoot more specific issues related to your devices.
