How to Print Text Messages from iPhone 11/XS/XR/X/8/7/6S

Sometimes the text messages on your iPhone would be crucial: they could be evidence to defend yourself at court or a precious memory between you and a passed-away friend. It is common for iPhone users to back up the iPhone text messages with iTunes or iCloud. However, it will be better to print out text messages from iPhone on paper, if you want to use them as convincing evidence. Also, since all the electronic devices would crash, this is another form of backup.

Although now Apple introduced AirPrint on iOS device, you can’t use it to directly print your messages from iPhone as the same of printing iPhone photos. Some iPhone users come up with printing text messages from iPhone by Email or taking screenshots. These two methods are easy and workable, but each of them has its disadvantages. In this article, we will share with you 4 different ways on how to print text messages from iPhone for court or backup, along with step-by-step guides.

Print Text Messages from iPhone.

Method 1: Print Out Text Messages from iPhone by Email

It is an easy way to print out text messages from iPhone by Email, but there are some defects of this method. You have to manually copy and paste the text messages one by one, which can be a tedious task if there are many text messages to print out. Moreover, the text messages printed out by Email have no time and date information, as well as the contact information of the person who sends the text messages. Thus, this method is only suitable when you have just a handful of iPhone text messages to print for backup.

  • Step 1: Open the Messages app on the iPhone and click on the conversation you want to print out.
  • Step 2: Long press the message until a “Copy/More” dialogue propping up, and then tap on the “Copy” option to copy the text messages you need.
  • Step 3: Go to the Mail app on the iPhone and create a new email.
  • Step 4: Paste the text message you copied on the message body, and send it to your own Email account.
  • Step 5: Open the email you just send and click on the arrow icon at the bottom right corner, then choose the Print option.
  • Step 6: Finally, choose a connected AirPrint-enabled printer and start printing text messages from iPhone.

In case you don’t have an AirPrint-enabled printer, you can try to sign in your email account on a PC or Mac and then print out iPhone text messages straight from the computer.

Method 2: Print Text Messages from iPhone via Taking Screenshots

As the iOS AirPrint function can be used to print photos from the iPhone, one of the easy ways to print iPhone messages is by taking screenshots. This method can retain time, date, and contact information, which cannot be achieved by Email. However, it needs your repeated operations if you want to print long or different message threads on the iPhone. Also, this method requires you to have an AirPrint-enabled printer. So taking screenshots is suitable when there are only one or several text messages to print from iPhone for court or other purpose.

Simple steps on how to print text messages from iPhone for free with screenshot:

  • Open the Messages app and find the texts you want to print.
  • Press the Home button and the Power button at the same time, then release them to take the screenshot. (iPhone X will need the Side button and the Volume Up button together)
  • Go to the Photos app on iPhone, select the screenshots of text messages, and tap on the Share button on the bottom left.
  • Choose “Print” in the sharing options and select a printer enabled AirPrint, or you can email it to your email account for printing.
