iPhone Users: Get Apple iMessages On Windows 11
This cool feature that allows iPhone text messaging from the Windows desktop was released by Dell a few years ago. Now, a replacement for that app is accessible on any Windows 11 PC without requiring a Dell.
It’s called Intel Unison, and even though it’s only intended to function on a select few laptops powered by Intel, it is said to function on any device running Windows 11. It’s a revelation to have it running on my 2019 Lenovo Yoga C940 laptop.
Download the Intel Unison app for Windows and the iOS companion app to get started. As an alternative to Microsoft’s built-in “Phone Link” feature, it is also accessible on Android.
Once your phone and computer are connected, the Windows app will guide you through a few steps.
Once you’ve done that, you can use your computer to send and receive text messages, including those sent via iMessage. The app also enables you to see your phone’s notifications, send files to your phone, view your phone’s camera roll, and make phone calls from your desktop.
There is one significant drawback: Unison only displays the messages that you receive while the app is open, rather than syncing your entire message history.
Nevertheless, it’s helpful for starting a conversation without pulling out your phone and for quickly typing out responses on a real keyboard.
