    Sync Messages on MB Pro with iPhone
    I got kicked out of Messages on my MBpro for some reason, and after logging in, they are no longer synced. I don't mean Messages missed a few; that's no problem, I mean that they no longer show the same content. I can send a text from Messages and not see it on my iPhone, yet the receiver tells me they got it.

    I Is there a way to set this so they sync up again? My iPhone runs iOS12 and MB Pro runs El Capitan. It is incredibly convenient for me in my work to be able to type fast texts on my MacBook. Thank you for any reply.

    It's been a long time since I used El Capitan so my instructions might be different for you.

    Make sure you are signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID both from your MacBook Pro and iPhone. You also need to be on the same network.

    If you have done all that and the iMessage syncing still isn't working, try signing out of iCloud on both devices and then sign in again. Usually that gets things working again.

    You didn't mention the age and model of your MacBook Pro and iPhone, but if you can update to the latest versions of iOS and macOS they can run it would be best.
