Export Attachments From Messages On Apple Devices


Export attachments via Messages on all platforms

There’s an easy way to export attachments in bulk, too.

In iOS and iPadOS:

Open the Messages app.

Tap on a conversation.

Tap the avatar or name at the top of the conversation.

Tap the “i” info button.

Swipe down to Photos and tap See All Photos.

Tap Select at the top of the view.

Now you can select multiple photos and tap Save to store them in the device’s camera roll.

You can repeat that action for Screenshots (by tapping the Screenshots button at the top of the view), but there’s no way to access files.


In Messages for macOS, you can save images out to Photos.

In macOS:

Open the Messages app.

Select the conversation.

Click the Details link in the upper-right corner.

Under Photos or Files, you can select one or multiple items.

With Photos, you can Control-click and choose Add to Photos Library.

With Photos and Files, you can drag the selection to the Finder.
