Today, we will learn how to forward a text on iPhone. Forwarding a text message can be useful in various situations, such as sharing important information with someone else or simply keeping a record of a conversation. Fortunately, the process is straightforward and can be done in just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, locate the Messages app on your iPhone’s home screen and tap on it to open.

Step 2: Select the Conversation

Next, select the conversation that contains the text message you want to forward. You can either find it by scrolling through your list of conversations or use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly locate it.

Step 3: Tap and Hold

Once you have opened the desired conversation, locate the specific text message that you want to forward. Tap and hold on that message until you see a pop-up menu appear.

Step 4: Choose ‘More’

In the pop-up menu, select the “More” option. This will allow you to select multiple messages if you wish to forward more than one at a time.

Step 5: Select the Message(s)

A checkmark will appear next to each selected message. Choose all the messages you want to forward by tapping on their respective checkboxes.


  • If you only want to forward one message, you can skip Step 4 and directly proceed with Step 5.
  • You can also tap on “Select All” at the top-left corner of the screen if you want to forward all messages in that particular conversation.

Step 6: Tap the Forward Button

Once you have selected the message(s) you want to forward, locate and tap on the forward button. It is represented by a curved arrow pointing to the right and can usually be found at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 7: Choose Recipient

After tapping the forward button, a new message composition screen will appear. Enter the name or phone number of the recipient in the “To” field. You can also select a contact from your contacts list by tapping on the “+” icon next to the “To” field.

Step 8: Add Additional Text (Optional)

If desired, you can add additional text to accompany the forwarded message. This can be helpful for providing context or additional information to the recipient. Simply tap in the text input area and type your message.

Step 9: Send

Finally, when you are ready to forward the message, tap on the send button (usually represented by a paper airplane icon). The forwarded message will be sent to your chosen recipient.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to forward a text on iPhone. Now you can easily share important messages with others or keep a record of important conversations.
