You have Apple products, thus you want to sync all of your iMessages across all of them. The answer for you is Apple’s “iCloud for Messages” capability. Learn how iCloud for Messages functions and how to enable it on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac in this article.
What Is the iCloud for Messages Function from Apple?
A tool called iCloud for Messages allows you to sync your iMessages across all of your Apple devices. iMessages are texts, photographs, or videos that you may transmit via Wi-Fi or mobile data networks to another iPhone, iPad, or Mac user.
Your full Apple Messages chat history is kept current on all devices associated with your Apple ID when iCloud for Messages is enabled. Your text, images, videos, and attachments will occupy iCloud storage as a result, and if you delete a message on one Apple device, it will be deleted from all of your devices as well.

How Do You Sync Your Conversations Between Apple Devices Using iCloud for Messages?
Your messages are not kept locally on your Apple device, but rather on the cloud via iCloud for Messages. You may now easily sync messages across all of your devices in real-time thanks to that improvement.
Whether you are using an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you can go into an Apple Messages chat and see the most recent messages. Nevertheless, in order for all of your messages to display on the Apple device and for you to have the same view everywhere, you must enable the feature and be logged in to your Apple ID.
