1. Use iTunes For Text Message Backup
You can backup messages on your iPhone by using iTunes. All you need to do is to right click on your iPhone in iTunes and then you have to click backup.

You can also make a backup copy on your computer. You can make a new folder on the desk top and call it IOS backup. It will be much easier to run the script later if we save the iPhone text message data here.
4. Download IOS Message Export Files
Once you get the script you need to download it in the zip file. The zip file has six different files and you have to make sure that you copy all these six files in the folder that you created on the desktop.
5. Use The Terminal To Execute The Script
By hitting the space bar and command together you can locate the terminal and open it. Now you need to type terminal.
Next, you will have to execute this command cd ~/Desktop/iOSBackup and now you will have to execute perl backup command with the name of your folder.
When you have completed the task of script execution you will see that ‘export folder’ gets created in the IOS backup folder. On opening the folder you will have access to all the folders with your previous conversations.
