This is the reason why your iPhone messages are blue or green

Have you ever wondered why some messages on your iPhone are blue, and other times are green? Well, it turns out the answer is simple. According to Apple’s support website, it all comes down to whether you’re sending your message as an iMessage, which shows up blue, or a text message, which shows up green.

Their website says: “You can use the Messages app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to send messages.” The first option is to send an iMessage. This is a text, photo or video sent to another device running on an Apple-created iOS operating system.

If you do this, the message will be sent using the internet, either via Wi-Fi or mobile data. These messages are always encrypted, meaning they shield content and attachments from being read or opened by anyone except the intended recipients. If there’s no Wi-Fi available, iMessages will be sent using mobile data and data rates may apply.

You can turn iMessage on or off by going to settings then selecting messages. The history of iPhones

If you aren’t using iMessage, you can use SMS (short message service), which don’t need an internet connection, or MMS (multimedia messaging service).

This is the reason why your iPhone messages are blue or green

SMS and MMS messages are not encrypted and appear in green text bubbles. These can be sent to devices which do not use an iOS operating system.

So, in simple terms, iMessages – to another Apple device using Wi-Fi or mobile data – are blue.

And text messages – to a non-Apple device using SMS or MMS – are green.
