Cannot receive some text messages on new mac Book Pro 16 inch. I have a brand new Mac Book Pro 16 inch (along with my iPhone 11 Pro Max and my iMac 27.. for some reason I am NOT receiving all my text messages on my new MBP 16 inch. Many Login systems at banks etc, for security, send a text message with a temp code to continue a login. Thes specific logins show up on my iPhone and my iMac, but not on my brand new MBP 16. NOTE - I have already "Migrated" everything to my MBP 16 from my iMac and all went well. Is there something in preferences or somewhere else I have to change in order to get ALL my text messages on my new MBP 16 inch?

Hi FlyingFliver,



Thanks for using Apple Support Communities. We understand you're not getting your text messages on all your devices. We certainly want to help get this resolved.



It sounds like this is isolated to text (green) messages only, so you may need to enable the new Mac for text message forwarding. See how here: How to forward SMS/MMS text messages from your iPhone to your iPad, iPod touch or Mac



Thanks.
