This works for all iPhones including the latest iPhone X/8/8+/7/7+.

Way 1: Copy Text Messages from Old iPhone to New iPhone

Every iOS users should be familiar with iTunes or iCloud, as they are widely used to restore SMS messages to new iPhone. However, I am not going to use neither of them for some well-known reasons, like data overwritten, cannot selectively backup a certain type of files, iCloud storage limitation and more.  

Alternatively, I shall recommend a third-party iOS file transferring software Tenorshare Phone to Phone Transfer to export SMS from old iPhone to new iPhone X/8/7. Your previous iOS device content and be directly extracted and migrated to new one without making a backup, and you can choose to transfer only text messages to new iPhone and not affect other existing data. Below step will simply walk you through the process to sync messages between iPhones.
