Are you wondering how to forward messages on your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the simple steps to forward any text message or iMessage to another contact. Let’s get started!

Forwarding Messages on iPhone

Forwarding messages can be extremely useful when you want to share an important conversation with someone else. Whether it’s a funny joke, a memorable moment, or an important piece of information, forwarding allows you to easily pass it along.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

Begin by locating and opening the Messages app on your iPhone’s home screen. The app icon resembles a green speech bubble.

Step 2: Select the Conversation

In the Messages app, find the conversation containing the message you want to forward. Tap on it to open the conversation thread.

Step 3: Tap and Hold

To access the forwarding options, tap and hold on the specific message within the conversation that you wish to forward. A menu will appear with various options.

  • Copy: This option allows you to copy the selected message without forwarding it.
  • More: Tapping on this option will show additional actions you can perform on the message, such as replying or deleting it.
  • Forward: This is what we’re looking for! Tap on “Forward” from the menu.

Step 4: Choose a Recipient

The next screen will display your recent contacts and suggest recipients based on your previous conversations. You can also search for a specific contact by typing their name in the search bar at the top of the screen.

Note: If you want to forward the message to multiple recipients, you can do so by selecting each contact individually or by creating a group in your contacts app and choosing that group as the recipient.

Step 5: Send the Forwarded Message

Once you have selected the recipient(s), tap on the send button (usually represented by a paper airplane icon) to forward the message. The forwarded message will appear in a new conversation window with your chosen recipients.

Note: When you forward a message, it will include any attachments, such as photos or videos, along with the text. The recipient(s) will see both the original sender’s name and your name as the forwarder.

You’re All Set!

Congratulations! You now know how to forward messages on your iPhone.

This feature can come in handy when you want to share important information or simply pass along a fun conversation. Remember to use it responsibly and respect others’ privacy.

Enjoy forwarding messages on your iPhone and make communication even more convenient!
