Without a doubt, iMessage is one of the most convenient services that we have on our iPhone, iPod or iPod Touch. However, the app and some of its default settings are not perfect and can even be annoying at times.
Being alerted more than once for the same message, not being able to send more than one photos from within the messages and other such annoyances are something Apple should have fixed long ago. They would eventually. In the meantime, let’s see how we can fix them ourselves for a better iMessage experience.
Send Groups of Photos in iMessage
However, if you look carefully, you might have noticed one thing: You can only attach one photo at a time this way. There is no option for adding more photos to your message using this method other than adding them one by one.
Thankfully, there is a very simple workaround to fix this. All you have to do is, instead of going to iMessage, head to the Photos app, open and album or event and tap on Edit at the top right of the screen. From there, select the photos you want to send via iMessage (up to nine at the same time are allowed) and then tap on Share.
From the options available, select iMessage and presto! Your photos will be added to your message and will be ready to send from there.
Get Rid of Multiple Message Alerts
To start, open the Settings app on your iPhone and head to Notifications. There, scroll down until you reach the Messages app and tap on it.
Once there, scroll down and select the Repeat Alert option as shown below. There you will be able to select the number of times that you want to be reminded of your messages.
Remember: Choosing Once will cause the app to alert you one more time after its original alert. So if you only want to receive one alert per message, choose Never.
Manage the iOS Devices Where You Get Messages
To manage which devices get certain messages, you have to open the Settings app and scroll down to Messages. Once there, tap on Send & Receive.
In the next screen, you will find all the emails associated with your iMessage account. There, all you have to do is to select/deselect the email addresses that you want to receive messages from on the particular device. That way, you can receive messages for only certain accounts on your iPhone and for the rest on your iPad for example.
And that’s about it. Use some (or all) of these iMessage tips to have an even better experience with the Messages app on your iPhone. Enjoy!
