iPhone, Tutorials

Have you ever wondered if there’s a way to see unsent messages on your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of viewing those messages that were never sent. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, locate and open the Messages app on your iPhone. This is where all your text conversations are stored.

Step 2: Access the Unsent Messages

Once you have opened the Messages app, look for the conversation that contains the unsent message. Tap on it to open the conversation thread.


If there are multiple conversations and you’re unsure which one has the unsent message, look for a conversation with a small exclamation mark next to it. This indicates that there is an unsent message in that particular thread.

Step 3: Scroll to Locate Unsent Message

When inside the conversation thread, scroll through the messages until you find the unsent message. It should be displayed in a different color or format than the sent messages.


If there are multiple unsent messages within a single thread, they will be listed in chronological order. You can easily identify them by looking for any visual cues like bold text or underlined text.

Step 4: View Unsent Message Details

To view more details about the unsent message, simply tap on it. This will bring up options such as editing or deleting the message before sending it.


Keep in mind that once you have edited or deleted an unsent message, it will no longer be visible as an unsent message. It will be treated as a new message or entirely removed from the conversation thread.

Step 5: Send the Unsent Message (Optional)

If you decide to send the unsent message, make any necessary changes or edits and then tap on the send button (usually an arrow icon). The message will now be sent to the recipient.


And there you have it! By following these simple steps, you can easily locate and view unsent messages on your iPhone.

Remember that it’s always a good practice to review your messages before sending them to avoid any errors or misunderstandings. Happy texting!
