How to Forward a Text Message on iPhone?

Listen to the Podcast:

Message forwarding was first a feature of emails, but over time, it has been added to other apps like WhatsApp. But over time, this feature has been added to more and more apps and services, such as the messages app on the iPhone.

You can now forward SMS and MMS text messages from the default Messages app. So, when you get a message, you can send it to someone else without having to copy it, choose the person you want to send it to, paste it, and send it. Because the iPhone Messages app lets you forward messages, the whole process will be automated and streamlined.

With the iPhone’s SMS or MMS forwarding feature, we can send a message to a single chat or to a group of chats.

Message forwarding is turned on by default on an iPhone, so you won’t have to turn it on in the Settings app. So, here’s how to use the iPhone’s built-in Messages app to forward SMS or MMS messages.
