- About iMessages￼
- About iMessages: Rita’s iDevice Advice for February 17, 2020This information was composed through collaboration with those of us who are with the TTJTECH.NET Team, who are teaching the VoiceOver Class through the iTunes University app.About iMessages:Apple iMessage uses the Internet, such as Wi-Fi or a cellular data connection, while SMS and MMS messages utilize your carrier’s texting plan. iMessages can only be sent between Apple devices. Apple iMessages are end-to-end encrypted.iMessages only work between iPhones (and other Apple devices such as iPads). If you are using an iPhone and you send a message to a friend on Android, itwill be sent as a SMS message and will be green. (This is true if just one person in a group message is on Android too.)If there is no available data network, messages to other iPhones will also be sent as SMS text messages.iMessaging offers a lot of cool features. With iMessage, you can share your location, send walkie-talkie style voice messages, get confirmation your message has been delivered, get read receipts, and see whether someone is replying to your message in real time (those animated littlegrey dots that show up underneath your message). More recent innovations in iMessage include being able to send stickers, animated GIFs, share music, and even send money using Apple Pay.iMessage also syncs with your iCloud account, so if you lose your phone or get a new one, you can take your messages with you.The process for sending and receiving messages is exactly the same, regardless the type of message, but some features may not be available unless you are using iMessage.Ways to respond to an incoming message:Double-tap on a conversation to open it. Swipe left and right to read through messages in the conversation. Use the Vertical Scroll Bar or the three finger swipe up and down to quickly jump to earlier or later portions of any conversation.To the left of the Message Edit field is a button which allows you to show or hide the iMessage App Drawer. With Messaging apps, you can send photos and videos from your library, send animated sketches and drawings, express your feelings in other ways, send and request money with Apple Pay Cash, send stickers, use Animoji and Memoji, play games, share a song, and much, much more. A variety of apps, such as Photos, Digital Touch, Animoji, Stickers, and Apple Pay, are already available on your devices, while other iMessage apps and sticker packs can be downloaded from the App Store, some for free, and others for a cost.Note that the Photos iMessage app is the only iMessage app that will work with non-Apple recipients.To work with iMessage apps, double-tap on the Apps button, then swipe right past the Edit field and so on to choose an app. The app card for the currently selected app can usually be found directly to the right of the Message Edit Field and the Send button.Taking Photos and Videos in Messages:To the left of the Apps button is the Camera button. Double-tapping this button allows you to begin taking a photo or video to attach to the message conversation.
