How to schedule text, photo, and video messages on Telegram

Schedule message on Telegram

Unlike iMessage or WhatsApp, the Telegram app offers a way to schedule text messages, photos, and videos. Once you schedule your message, it's sent automatically at the set time.

So, whether it's for wishing a friend happy birthday precisely at midnight or messaging your colleagues at an appropriate future time, you can easily schedule your Telegram messages, and this tutorial shows you how to do that from your iPhone, Android phone, iPad, or Mac.

How to transfer SMS and iMessage texts from one iPhone to another iPhone

Transfer SMS text and iMessage from one iPhone to another iPhone

If you have valuable SMS, MMS, and iMessage on your current iPhone, you might not want to leave them behind. Instead, you'll want to transfer them to your new iPhone when you make the switch. Similarly, if you have to erase your iPhone to troubleshoot an issue, you'll want to back up your messages and restore them later on that same iOS device.

In this tutorial, we'll show you how to transfer messages from iPhone to iPhone.

Do you ever wonder exactly how much time you spend texting your friends, or perhaps even the number of messages you’ve exchanged?

How to filter and see messages by individual SIM or phone number on iPhone in iOS 16

Filter message as per SIM on your iPhone

iPhone XS, XR, and all later models including the new iPhone 14 series, support multiple SIMs. As a result, you can add/store up to 8 (or more) eSIMs to your iPhone (although only two will work at a time).

If you currently use two or more SIMs on your iPhone, such as one for personal contacts, one for business, and one for international travel, it then becomes essential to have filters.

Thankfully, you can now filter your texts according to the SIM card in the iOS 16 Messages app.

How to mark a text message as unread on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Mark message as unread on iPhone in iOS 16

Marking an opened email as unread has been a feature forever. And now, with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS Ventura, you can also mark an SMS or iMessage as unread.

Doing so adds back the tiny blue unread dot to differentiate it from an opened message. Plus, it adds or increases the red badge count on the Messages app icon (visible on the Home Screen). These little things can tell you that you have an unopened text, which you can get back to later.

How to unsend messages on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Earlier, when you accidentally sent a wrong, angry, or error-laden iMessage, there was no way to undo that. And tricks to stop an outgoing message by immediately enabling Airplane mode or disabling cellular data weren't always successful.

Thankfully, with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura, you can unsend a message in just a couple of steps. And you have two minutes to do that!
