iTunes and iCloud May Be Not The Perfect Way

Most of users would like to copy contacts or some other files to their new Apple iOS device by using iCloud sync. But iCloud or iTunes doesn't allow you to sync messages between iOS devices.

Although messages can be saved to iTunes/iCloud backup and restored to your new iPhone 7, in the process of restoring, almost all data and setting (including something useless and large-sized) on your old device will be transferred to your new device. Sometimes, we don't want this happen.
