Why should you have to transfer messages from iPhone to your Computer?
This process called backup is essential as we cannot predict the status of our device or our files in the future. To prevent them from undergoing damage or a hard crash, it's highly recommended to save it using either iCloud or iTunes on your computer. If you do that, you can delete the same on your handset, thereby freeing it off all the cookies and giving your storage some breathing space. This will also enhance the performance of your phone, making it perform effectively.
