There are different ways you can use to forward a photo message from your iPhone to your friends or someone else. In this guide, we are going for the easiest and quickest way for forwarding your photo messages to your friends from an iPhone. The process is pretty similar to how we forward a picture or an email in the Mail app from your iPhone to another contact.
Steps to forward a photo message from your iPhone to someone else
Before we begin, make sure that you are now running iOS 10 or newer. The below-mentioned step-by-step guide works best for any iPhone and iPad running modern versions of iOS. Here we go:
Step one: First off, you are supposed to open the Messages app on your iPhone or iPad. Once you are done, head to the messaging thread with the photo you wish to forward to your friends or someone else
Step two: Once you are done, all you have to do now is to tap and hold on the photo you want to send to someone else in your messaging thread
Step three: You will see a pop-up menu that shows up and all you need to do is to select “More..” to proceed
Step four: Once you are done, the photo you want to send to someone else will have a checkbox next to it indicating that your photo has been selected. Once done, all you need to do is to select the little arrow icon in the bottom right corner of the screen to forward your message
Step five: You are now supposed to type in the recipient in the new Message window on top and tap the Send button like you always do
Note that you can use this guide to send any photo, gift, video or movie and the recipient will not be aware of who took the picture. If you want to give more explanation, you can add a note to the photo.
