Have you ever thought of transferring photos, videos and funny GIFs from all your WhatsApp, Viber and SMS threads to your home PC? Or saving cool SuperMarioRun stickers from your iMessages to a folder on your computer?

This guide will show you how to export all photos, videos, voice messages and even cute stickers from your iPhone messaging apps and save them to your computer. With CopyTrans Contacts you can save the whole thread or select only the most valuable messages from it.

This method works with all devices running iOS 10 and earlier (starting with iOS 7 for WhatsApp), including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X and with Windows 10, Windows 8 & Windows 7.how to save supermariorun imessage stickers to a pc folder
