While it’s easy to keep a backup of your text messages, there may be conversations that you want to print out and keep on paper for legal or personal archival purposes.
In this article, we’ll look at a couple of apps that can help you print your text messages on an iPhone or Android device, including the full conversation history, including all sent and received messages, contact information, timestamps, and attached files.
You can use TouchCopy on an unlimited number of iOS devices, including iPhones, iPads, and iPods, to access and copy all of their contents. TouchCopy can save and print your text messages, multimedia messaging service (MMS), instant messaging service (IMS), and WhatsApp conversations for future reference or legal purposes.
The screenshot below is from TouchCopy on an iPhone and displays a conversation between two users. In TouchCopy, WhatsApp messages will appear below any ongoing text conversations.
TouchCopy allows you to select and print only messages between specified date ranges, so you can get exactly the messages you need without having to print out the entire conversation if you only need a subset of it.
TouchCopy will show and print your text messages in the same format as your iPhone, right down to the individual emoticons and images. For this reason, your messages will contain all of the relevant data.
Take And Print Screenshots Of Message Threads On iPhone
How often do you find yourself wishing you had hard copies of the messages you’ve sent and received via SMS and iMessage on your iPhone? It is not possible to print individual messages or conversation threads within the iOS Messages app without resorting to third-party solutions.
Here are three methods that you can use to print text messages from your iPhone. These rules also apply to the Messages app on the iPod touch and iPad.
Taking screenshots and printing them on an AirPrint-compatible printer is the only way to print your messages from an iPhone. Still, it’s a pain in the neck to do, especially for extended chats. If you find that to be too much of a hassle, you may want to investigate other options.
To print an iPhone SMS or iMessage conversation, follow these steps:
1. Launch the Messages app.
2. Open the conversation you wish to print.
3. Tap the Print button.
Move up to the first post in the thread (2). To quickly advance the screen’s topmost section, tap the corners of the display repeatedly.
Third, make a screenshot and store it in your camera roll. To take a screenshot on an iPhone equipped with Face ID, press the Volume Up button and the Side button simultaneously. If your device supports Touch ID, you’ll want to press the Home and Side buttons at the same time.
Four, repeatedly take screenshots as you scroll down the conversation thread.
Using the app switcher, you can enter the Print Center and handle the print job from there (swipe up from the bottom of the screen or double-click the Home button twice).
The screenshots can also be downloaded as a PDF. Step 9’s Print option (without choosing a physical print) should allow you to save the document to your iPhone’s Files app if you’re using iOS 15 or later. You can also send the pictures to a computer running Windows or Mac OS X (using Airdrop or the Mail app) and print them there.
Sync Text Messages Via iCloud And Print Them On Mac
Unlike its iOS counterpart, the macOS version of Messages can print both standard text and iMessage exchanges. If you own a Mac and have Messages in iCloud turned on, all you need to do is sign in to the Messages app with the same Apple ID you use with your iPhone.
The contact’s name will not appear at the top of the printed pages, however. If you’re having that kind of difficulty, you might want to try the following approach.
1: To access iCloud from your iOS device, open the Settings app and navigate to Apple ID > iCloud. Then, make sure the toggle for Messages is on.
2. Launch Messages from your Mac’s application menu and choose Messages > Preferences.
3. Open the iMessage window in your browser.
4, after logging into the Mac with the same Apple ID as your iPhone, click the box next to Enable Messages in iCloud.
5. Hold off until your Mac has received all of the messages from your iPhone.
Step 6: Go to the conversation you want to print.
7. To read the entire thread, please go to the top of the page.
8. Choose File > Print from the main menu.
9. After choosing a printer and customizing print settings (number of copies, paper size, orientation, etc.), clicking Print. Save the conversation as a PDF by selecting the PDF option in the bottom menu.
Pick Your Method And Start Printing
Using the techniques outlined here, you should be able to print text messages from your iPhone.
They aren’t exactly the most practical, I’ll give you that. You’ll have to go through a lot of trouble to get copies until Apple adds a dedicated Print function to the Messages app for iPhone (no pun intended).
