    If your messages and contacts were synced through iCloud they should be on your iPad already. If you're asking about remote access apps for iOS devices, there aren't any. It would be a huge security issue if there were such apps in the App Store. Do you have a recent backup of the iPhone? If so, that information will be one the backup and setting up another device from that backup will give you access to everything that iPhone.

    Not an iPhone, moto something. I was wondering cause I see other people borrow someone’s phone to check their own when they left it at home.

    I wanted to send messages to people that my phone isn’t working, and I have exactly the same contacts in both, but when I try to ms some of them their name turns red and send doesn’t work. What’s up with that ?

    I’ve had that happen to me. Delete their names and put them back in. I hope that helps
