How to forward messages on iPhone and iPad

You can forward any iMessage — or SMS or MMS — to anyone else in your contacts.

  1. Launch Messages from your Home screen.
  2. Tap the conversation that contains the message(s) you’d like to forward.
  3. Tap and hold the message you’d like to forward.
  4. Tap More….
  5. Tap on the forward button in the lower right-hand corner.
  6. A new message will populate, pre-filled with your forwarded text. Just fill in the recipient and send it on its way!

Keep in mind you can forward more than one message at a time. Just tap all the ones you want to forward before you tap the actual forward button!
