Phone Link was previously only available for Android phones. However, the program does not have as many features as Apple’s Messages for Mac. It works over Bluetooth, according to The Verge, and requires the iPhone to have the Link to Windows app installed.

Phone Link only shows messages sent or received, so if a user sends a message on their phone, they won’t see the message history in the Windows app. Microsoft started rolling out Phone Link for iOS on Windows 11 last month, supporting 39 languages in 85 markets. The company notes it will take several weeks for it to reach everyone.
