Creating a group text on iPhone is a convenient way to communicate with multiple people at once. Whether you want to plan an event, share important information, or simply catch up with friends, group texting can save you time and effort. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps of creating a group text on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To start creating a group text, open the Messages app on your iPhone. You can find it on your home screen or by swiping down and using the search bar.

Step 2: Tap on the Compose New Message Button

Once you have opened the Messages app, locate and tap on the compose new message button. This button typically looks like a pencil and paper icon located in the top right corner of the screen.

Pro Tip:

If you frequently create group texts, you can also access this feature by swiping left from your main messages screen and tapping on “New Message”.

Step 3: Add Recipients

In the recipient field, start typing the names or phone numbers of the people you want to include in your group text. As you type, your iPhone will suggest contacts based on your address book.


  • If some of your contacts have multiple phone numbers or email addresses associated with them, make sure to select their mobile phone numbers for this particular group text.
  • You can add as many recipients as you want for your group text.

Step 4: Create Your Group Name

To easily identify your group text in the future, it’s helpful to assign it a name. Tap on the “Enter Group Name” field and type a name that represents the purpose or members of your group text.

Pro Tip:

If you are creating a group text for a specific event or topic, consider using a relevant name like “Family Reunion”, “Project Team”, or “Weekend Plans”.

Step 5: Compose Your Message

With the recipients and group name set, it’s time to compose your message. Tap on the text field at the bottom of the screen and start typing your message.

Tips for Composing Group Texts:

  • Keep your message concise and clear to ensure everyone understands its purpose.
  • Avoid sending sensitive or private information in a group text as all participants will be able to see each other’s replies.
  • You can use emojis, images, or even attach files to make your group text more engaging.

Step 6: Send Your Group Text

Once you have composed your message, you are ready to send it. Tap on the arrow icon in the text field to send your group text to all recipients.


Sending a group text will create a new conversation thread in your Messages app where all participants can reply and contribute to the conversation.


In this tutorial, we have learned how to create a group text on iPhone. By following these steps, you can easily communicate with multiple people simultaneously, saving time and effort.

Remember to keep your messages clear and concise while also considering privacy when sharing sensitive information. Now go ahead and start creating your own group texts on your iPhone!
