iMessage is one of the main advantages of being part of the Apple ecosystem. The instant messaging service works across iOS, macOS, iPadOS, and watchOS, making it one of the obvious choice for Apple users. You can send messages, photos, videos, animojis, GIFs, documents, etc to anyone else using iMessage. It offers privacy with end-to-end encryption, and delivery/read receipts. However, iMessages still doesn't offer the option to customize the message bubble colors.

These days, most children have access to an iPhone or an iPad, either their own, or one that belongs to their parents.
