How do I enable MMS Messaging on Mac?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To enable MMS messaging on your Mac, you need to follow a few simple steps. Please note that MMS messaging requires an active cellular plan with MMS capabilities on your iPhone.

1. On your iPhone, go to “Settings > Messages.”

2. Scroll down and tap on “Text Message Forwarding.”

3. You will see a list of devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID. Find your Mac in the list and toggle the switch next to it to enable text message forwarding.

4. A prompt will appear on your Mac’s screen, asking you to enter a code displayed on your iPhone.

5. On your Mac, open the Messages app. If it’s not already open, you can find it in the Applications folder or by using Spotlight search.

6. In the Messages app on your Mac, you will see a message with a code. Enter this code on your iPhone and tap “Allow.”

7. Once you enter the code and tap “Allow” on your iPhone, your Mac will be authorized to send and receive text messages, including MMS messages.

Now, you should be able to send and receive MMS messages on your Mac. When you receive an MMS message, it will appear in the Messages app on your Mac, just like a regular text message.

It’s important to note that MMS messaging requires an active cellular connection on your iPhone, as the messages are still being sent and received through your iPhone’s cellular network. Additionally, your iPhone must be turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Mac for text message forwarding to work.

If you encounter any issues with enabling MMS messaging on your Mac, make sure you have a stable internet connection on both your iPhone and Mac, and double-check that you have enabled text message forwarding for your Mac in the Messages settings on your iPhone.

I hope this helps you enable MMS messaging on your Mac! Let me know if you have any further questions.
