How to Get iMessage on Your PC With iPadian iOS Emulator
If you’re a fan of iMessage on your iPhone and want to use it on your PC as well, then fear not – when there’s a will, there’s a way. Here’s how to do it.
You don’t really want to have your phone sat there next to you while you’re working, do you? The potential for distractions becomes huge. As soon as you’ve picked the thing up to check a message, you end up on Instagram, then Facebook, then YouTube, and oh, your work is dead.
It’s much easier to just have all your messages come through to your computer. People have been doing this with WhatsApp Web for years now, but iMessage has remained in the iOS camp.
Obviously, not everyone is willing to drop a thousand dollars on a Mac for the sake of a ‘creative interface’ and an inability to run half the programs you’d run on Windows. For the PC crowd, WhatsApp Web is no problem, but getting your messages from you iMessage app onto your PC can seem like a lost cause for the uninitiated. Fear not, we’ve got you covered.
How to get iMessage on PC with iPadian iOS emulator
It’s important to understand that iMessage isn’t meant to work on Windows – it’s exclusively for iOS devices. That being said, there’s always a way to get around these things and in this case it’s pretty simple.
First things first, you’ll need to install an iOS emulator on your computer and then install the iMessage through this. We recommend iPadian as it has a reputation as being the most effective iOS emulator for Windows.

Once you’ve signed into your Apple account, you’ll have all your messages synced into the Messages app right here on your PC. Now you can carry on all your conversations without having to pick up your iPhone.
Even more messages with WhatsApp Web
It’s pretty likely that only a small percentage of your messages are actually coming through the Messages app. You’re probably using Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp for most of your conversations. Getting Facebook Messenger on a PC is a no-brainer, but WhatsApp… how do you do that?
This one doesn’t require you to download anything extra. In fact, it’s so simple that you’ll be surprised you never knew about it. It’s much more convenient to use while you’re at work and for many people is just outright more comfortable to message with.
To use WhatsApp Web, simply go to web.whatsapp.com and sign in to your account. You’ll need to hold your phone up to a QR code in order to sign in. That’s it, you’re ready to go. All your conversations will be there waiting for you.
The interface of WhatsApp Web is basically the same as the mobile app. It comes with a minimalist design which focusses the attention on your conversations and not much else.
If you’re looking to turn your PC into something that can do everything your iPhone can, then the two tricks above will be your new best pals. Enjoy!
