MadMike_10,

Congratulations on your new iPhone 7! We definitely want for you to be able to transfer everything you need from one phone to the other. Thank you Weth, for the helpful information. The good thing about iPhone’s is that transferring all of your information is easy! With iPhone’s, you can choose to back up the phone with iCloud on your phone or iTunes via your computer. Please see this link http://apple.co/1MsOuVr on how to perform these steps. Once you have everything backed up on the iPhone 6, you can restore everything to the new iPhone 7 with these instructions: http://apple.co/2d8APpD.

If you backed up your iPhone to iCloud to iTunes, when you set up the new iPhone and restore from the backup, the messages will transfer.
