How do I forward an Imessage to another person?

Answered by Edward Huber

To forward a message on an iPhone, you can follow these simple steps:

1. Open the Messages app on your iPhone.
2. Navigate to the conversation that contains the message you want to forward.
3. Find the specific message within the conversation that you wish to forward. It could be a text message, an iMessage, or even a photo or video.
4. Press and hold the message you want to forward until a menu pops up. This menu will have several options, including “Copy,” “More…,” and “Delete.”
5. Tap on the “More…” option. This will allow you to select multiple messages if you want to forward more than one at a time.
6. Once you tap “More…,” you will notice that the selected message now has a blue checkmark next to it.
7. If you want to forward multiple messages, you can tap on each one to add a checkmark next to them.
8. Once you have selected the message(s) you want to forward, tap on the arrow icon that points to the right. This icon is located at the bottom right corner of the screen.
9. A new message composition window will appear, and the selected message(s) will be automatically inserted into the text field.
10. Type in the name, phone number, or email address of the contact you want to forward the message to. As you start typing, your iPhone will suggest matching contacts from your address book.
11. Once you have entered the recipient’s information, you can add any additional text or comments if desired.
12. tap the send button (usually an arrow or a paper airplane icon) to forward the message.

That’s it! The message you selected will now be forwarded to the recipient you specified. They will receive the message as if it was originally sent to them directly.

It’s worth mentioning that when you forward a message, it will appear in the recipient’s conversation thread with you as the sender. This means that they will see your name or phone number as the sender, even though it was originally sent by someone else.

Remember, the forwarding feature in iMessage is a convenient way to share messages or media with others. However, always consider the content and context of the message before forwarding it to someone else, as privacy and consent are important aspects to consider.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you understand how to forward an iMessage on your iPhone. If you have any further questions or need clarification, feel free to ask.
