iMessage, a service comes with Messages on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, is free for you not only to text simple messages (SMS), but share photos, videos, locations, and contacts over Wi-Fi instantly. Let's explore some hidden and excellent features and function on iMessage.

Feature 1 iMessages are Blue

No matter you want to send SMS or iMessage, you should move to the "Messages" app. That's also why people confuse about which one they are sending to others. Actually you can figure out which one you are sending from two areas: the first one is the sending box; the other is the text bubble. If it's blue, you are using iMessage instead of SMS.

The same as LINE and WhatsApp, you can also set read receipts on iMessage which allows your senders to be notified when you have read their messages. To some people, this is a pretty reassuring and considerate especially for those busy working, while others think it a bit stalker style. Enabling this function, just go "Message" in the "Settings" menu and turn on the toggle next to "Send Read Receipts" option.
