Printing out text messages from your iPhone can be a useful way to keep a physical record of important conversations or for legal purposes. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of printing out your text messages on an iPhone.

Step 1: Take a Screenshot

Before you can print out your text messages, you need to take screenshots of the conversation you want to print. To capture a screenshot on an iPhone, press and hold the Side button (or Sleep/Wake button) simultaneously with the Volume Up button. You will see a flash on your screen, indicating that the screenshot has been taken.

Step 2: Access the Screenshots

Now that you have taken screenshots of your text messages, you need to access them in order to print them. Open the Photos app on your iPhone and navigate to the “Screenshots” album. Your screenshots should be saved there.

Step 3: Select and Edit

To print multiple text message screenshots, tap on “Select” in the top-right corner of the screen. Now, choose all the screenshots you want to include in your printed document by tapping on each one.

Once selected, tap on “Done. “

If necessary, you can edit each screenshot before printing. Tap on a screenshot and then tap on “Edit” in the top-right corner of the screen. Here, you can crop out any unnecessary parts or add annotations using tools like Markup.

Step 4: Print

After selecting and editing your screenshots, it’s time to print them out. Tap on the share icon (a square with an arrow pointing upwards) located at the bottom-left corner of the screen.

A share sheet will appear with various options. Scroll through the options and tap on “Print.” If you can’t find the “Print” option, swipe left on the bottom row of icons and tap on “More,” then enable the “Print” option.

Printing Options

Once you tap on “Print,” a print preview screen will appear. Here, you can choose your printer, select the number of copies, and adjust other settings as needed.

Print Settings

If you want to adjust print settings like paper size or orientation, tap on the small arrow icon next to “Printer” at the top of the screen. From here, you can make any necessary modifications.

Step 5: Start Printing

When you are satisfied with your print settings, tap on “Print” in the top-right corner of the screen. Your iPhone will send the selected screenshots to your printer, and they will be printed out as physical documents.


Printing out text messages from your iPhone is a simple process that involves taking screenshots, selecting and editing them, and then sending them to a printer. By following these steps, you can create physical copies of important text conversations for your reference or documentation purposes.

Note: It’s worth mentioning that this method prints out screenshots of your text messages rather than actual text files. If you prefer to have digital copies in a readable format, consider using third-party apps or software that allow exporting text messages from your iPhone.
