iMessage lets you send text, pictures, videos, sound, location, and more—right from your iPhone and iPad!
iMessage is Apple’s built-in instant messaging (IM) service. It lets you send text, picture, video, sound, and location quickly and easily to anyone else using iMessage on iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch. On iPhone, it lives alongside SMS and MMS, so you can keep in touch with non-Apple friends from the same app. Thanks to Continuity, you can even get those “green bubbles” on iPad and Mac as well! It makes for an incredibly powerful, unified experience.
More recently, Apple has made the “instant” part of messaging even more instant, allowing you to touch and send still and video selfies, soundbites, current location, and more. The company has also merged in Find My Friends functionality so you can keep location shared for an hour, a day, or more, and made group messaging much better and more convenient.
You can even renamed groups, browse images and attachments, and quickly switch to phone, FaceTime, mail, and other forms of communication more easily than ever.
No wonder iMessage is one of the most popular apps on iOS!
