Even exporting is a way to be able to send data or documents from an iPhone to an Android terminal, for example.

To save them, export them from the Messages app to a folder or another suitable app. If the Messages app quits unexpectedly when you export a group chat or a long chat with a lot of media files, try restarting your Mac or updating it to the latest version of macOS. Use only an iPhone or iPad There is no built-in method to save your iMessage and SMS conversations as PDF files directly from your Apple mobile devices. However, there are workarounds, such as taking screenshots of the conversation. Take screenshots of your conversation on your iPhone or iPad. Use an app like Picsew to capture a screenshot of the entire text conversation and then save it as a PDF. Additionally, you can combine multiple screenshots vertically and then convert the resulting long image to a PDF. That done, you’re done. >
