iMessage is coming to Windows … kind of
Here's how Windows 11's workaround will work. And not.
If you use an iPhone and a Windows PC, I pity you just a little bit.
It’s not like the Apple ecosystem allows absolutely seamless cross-platform interaction. But the way, for instance, the Messages app bridges the gap between iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple Watch is still borderline amazing.

One more thing ...
Their products have no spirit or enlightenment about them. They are very pedestrian. And the sad part is that most customers don’t have a lot of that spirit either.
Do you use a Windows PC with your Apple devices?
