Are you looking to forward text messages on your iPhone? Whether you want to share an important message with someone else or simply keep a record of it, forwarding text messages can be a useful feature. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of forwarding text messages on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, locate and open the Messages app on your iPhone. It is represented by a green speech bubble icon.

Step 2: Select the Message

Next, navigate to the conversation containing the message you want to forward. Tap on that particular conversation to open it.

Step 3: Tap and Hold

Now, find the specific message within the conversation that you wish to forward. Tap and hold on that message until a menu appears.

Step 4: Choose “More..”

Once the menu appears, select the “More.” option from the list. This will allow you to select multiple messages if needed.

Step 5: Select Multiple Messages (Optional)

If you want to forward multiple messages at once, tap on each individual message to select them. You will notice a blue checkmark appearing next to each selected message.

Step 6: Tap on the Arrow

After selecting one or more messages, look for an arrow icon located at the bottom right corner of your screen. Tap on this arrow icon to proceed with forwarding.

Step 7: Enter Recipient

A new window will appear where you can enter the recipient’s contact information. You can either manually type in their phone number or select a contact from your address book by tapping on the “+” button.

Step 8: Tap “Send”

Once you’ve entered the recipient’s information, tap on the “Send” button. This will forward the selected messages to the chosen recipient.

Congratulations! You have successfully forwarded text messages on your iPhone. It’s as simple as that!

Remember, forwarding text messages can be a convenient way to share information or keep a record of important conversations. However, always ensure that you have the permission of all parties involved before forwarding any private or sensitive messages.

Additional Tips:

  • If you want to forward an entire conversation, follow the same steps but instead of selecting a specific message, tap and hold anywhere in the conversation and choose “More.”
  • You can also forward multimedia messages such as photos or videos using this method.
  • If you accidentally forwarded a message and want to delete it, simply tap on the message and select “Delete Message”. Please note that this will only delete your copy of the forwarded message and not the original message sent by someone else.

With these easy steps, you can efficiently forward text messages on your iPhone and make sharing information a breeze. Happy messaging!
