Apple iPhones offer you both normal texting service i.e. SMS & iMessages, however, this homegrown messaging system works only between iPhone to iPhone or say within the Apple devices.

Methods To Get iMessage On PC.
There are two methods to get the iMessage working on your PC, both written below.
# Using A Jailbroken iPhone:
If you don’t have an already jailbroken iPhone then you must immediately consider to skip to the alternative method written below or you can also jailbreak your iPhone. But before doing so, you need to understand that jailbreaking iPhone voids the warranty and your phone is not Apple’s responsibility anymore from now on. If anything like software damage or physical wear-tear, happens after the jailbreak process to your iPhone, isn’t Apple’s concern.
We are considering that you have an already jailbroken iPhone handy with the Cydia software app already installed. Or you can download the cydia.exe file by visiting at https://cydia-app.com/downloads/ & choose the compatible version according to your iPhone’s model. Now let’s start the process stepwise.
Step 1- Open Cydia app from the home screen of your iPhone.
Step 2- Click on the Search button and write “Remote Messages” in it, followed by OK.
Step 3- Now you will see a list of remote messages apk(s), tap on the one which is compatible with your iPhone’s operating system.
Step 4- Install the compatible apk by clicking on the Install button present on the top right corner of the screen followed by OK.
Step 5- After successful installation, go to the Settings in your iPhone.
Step 6- Scroll down to the end, until the “Remote Messages” option displays, once found, click on it.
Step 7- Turn ON the enable slider & change the authentication credentials if you want to.
Leave Your iPhone and Turn To Your PC, open browser and follow the steps…
Step 8- Copy the IP address as it is from the Remote Message settings, followed by the server port number with colon sign, write this whole text in the webpage search plate and press the enter key. For eg: 987.654.321:333 here the 987.654.321 is your IP address & 333 is your server port number with colon sign as prefix of it.
Step 9- After this, a new window will pop up on your computer screen, put the username & password as it is from the Remote Message Settings from the iPhone, and press enter.
Viola, now you can seamlessly enjoy the iMessage directly on your PC with no hassle. You do not need to keep your phone unlocked all the time or keep the iMessage open, do whatever you want to do with your phone, this iMessage here on your PC will work anyway.
# Using A Third Party App.
If you desperately want to use iMessage into your PC and don’t want to jailbreak your iPhone then you have no option to trust the third party apps, which are obviously untrusted by Apple.inc since ever.
You can browse through the internet and find yourself the apps claiming to have iMessage working efficiently on your computer. The best app rated for this purpose is “iPadian” by the users. Other apps are there too, you can use anyone you want as long as they are working good for you.
We do not recommend any of these ways. As one of this involves jailbreak, which is not a good idea at all until you are done with your iphone & the other one involves using an untrusted app, which may turn into a threat for your data & personal information security.
A Request/Suggestion To Apple.
iMessage on PC is demanded by many and the graph will continue to grow until the Apple guys really turn this into reality. There are two possible ways that we suggest the Apple.inc to consider, in order to make this happen.
# First: Add iMessage on iCloud.com:
By visiting www.icloud.com we get many options and services but not iMessage. It will take simple changes for Apple.inc to get this done and we are good to go.
# Second: Dedicated Open iMessage App:
By creating a separate iMessage app, which should be open for windows platform and must be available to downtown both on the windows official website & Apple’s official website. The interface must be kept easy, like just download and install the app, login to the app in your PC, get it verified from your iPhone once and that’s it. You have a working iMessage on your PC.
