That's it, your PDF copy is created. You can find the PDF file in the same document name as the image/screenshot name.

If you are an iPhone 15 user, you must be familiar with iMessages. It's a messaging service designed by Apple and works just like a texting app. But, the best thing about iMessages is that you can send and receive texts and media between multiple Apple devices.

  • Your Mac is logged in with the same Apple ID as your iPhone 15. If not, go to "System Preferences" > "Apple ID" and log in with your Apple ID.
  • Your Mac has access to your messages on iMessages. If not, open the "Messages" app on your Mac > navigate to "Messages" > "Preferences" > "Accounts" > make sure your Apple ID is listed and selected.

Once you are done with these two requirements, your messages should sync both on your iPhone 15 and Mac using the same Apple ID.
