    I have an iPhone 6 and have never deleted my messages with most of my contacts. I recently noticed that my phone is rather glitchy and checked my storage and it's super full. I deleted all the apps I no longer use and moved my pictures to my computer. But it seems that the text messages are still taking up a lot of space. I am hesitant to delete my messages because of sentimental reasons. Is there a way to download or export the messages to save elsewhere? Thanks in advance.

    One way to do this would be using iExplorer; however, it costs $39.99.

    You could do a backup to iCloud. That would store your messages. Be careful as every time you backup the iPhone it might delete the backup with the messages

    I try to do a backup on my mac regularly but my icloud is full, does that mean that my mac isn't saving them? And if they are saved how do i access them?

    When you get close to your storage limit on iCloud, the next time you make a backup, iCloud will delete the oldest backup and replace it with the new version..
