If you don't see High Sierra 10.13.5, you might need to install incremental security updates before Apple pushes the latest High Sierra build to your device. The latest version of macOS High Sierra brings Messages in iCloud to the Mac alongside some enterprise and security updates. The new feature can be turned on from the preferences section of the Messages app by going to Preferences Accounts Enable Messages in iCloud.

After the installation of macOS High Sierra 10.13.5, the activation of this feature has to be done manually and on all the iOS devices.

Apple has released macOS 10.13.5 High Sierra: a 1.56 GB update you can install from Software Update, as a 2 GB standalone delta updater, or a 2.3 GB standalone combo updater. We're predominantly talking about the aforementioned Messages on iCloud functionality which, as mentioned above, will ensure that all message conversations are backed up securely and seamlessly in Apple's iCloud platform. "Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product's security".

To activate this feature on iOS, open the Settings app and navigate to [your name] iCloud Enable Messages in iCloud. This previously required restoring your Mac from a backup. There's also multiple bug and stability fixes. The update which has been listed on Apple's support site details that they have rectified vulnerabilities in graphics drivers for Intel and AMD chips where they enabled applications to read restricted memory. Also, since the completion of the update is dependent on a restart, therefore save all your work ahead of time.

macOS 10.13.5 is available for all Macs running macOS High Sierra from the Mac App Store.
