I want to save iMessage history including attachments on my iPhone to the computer, so that I can copy or send it to my Email. Is it possible? I use iPhone 6s, iOS 9.3. Thanks:)

Still save iMessage from iPhone to PC or Mac by making a screenshot of it? Stop it now. The great way to save iMessage on iPhone is saving it as a readable and editable file, not a picture. You can't do it before, but you can do it now. With an iMessage export tool, it's a simple work.
