backing up sms/iMessage

iOS & iPadOS

I was wondering if anyone knew of a reliable method for backing up iMessages from the iPhone? I need to restore my phone to its factory settings, but have several conversations that I would really rather not lose.
I have been doing some research over the last few days, but can't seem to find something both current and accessible.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Matthew

Try this:

Hope this helps.

P.S. I wonder if there is a way to save all the audio from IMessages at once, in IOS 10 there is a bug which doesn't allow me even to get to the list of all the attachments I received.

How does this website work? There are places it's telling me to download a tool, and some that tell me I can do this from the website.
