A Step-by-Step Guide: How to Create a Group Text on iPhone

Are you tired of sending the same message to multiple contacts individually? Creating a group text on your iPhone can save you time and effort by allowing you to send messages to multiple people at once. Whether you want to plan a gathering with your friends or keep your family members informed, creating a group text can be incredibly useful. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of creating a group text on your iPhone.

Accessing the Messages App

The first step in creating a group text on your iPhone is accessing the Messages app. This app allows you to send and receive text messages, photos, videos, and more. To find the Messages app, simply locate the green icon with a white speech bubble on your home screen. Tap on it to open the app.

Creating a New Message

Once you have opened the Messages app, it’s time to create a new message. Look for the square icon with a pencil located at the top right corner of the screen. Tap on it to start composing a new message.

Within this new message screen, you will see an empty “To” field where you can add recipients. This is where you’ll add all the contacts that you want to include in your group text.

Adding Contacts to Your Group Text

To add contacts to your group text, begin typing their names or phone numbers into the “To” field. As you type, suggestions will appear below that match what you’ve entered so far. You can tap on each suggestion or continue typing until all desired recipients are included.

If some of your contacts have multiple phone numbers or email addresses associated with them, make sure to select their mobile numbers for this specific group text.

Additionally, if there are contacts that are not saved in your phone’s address book but whom you still want to include in the group text, you can manually type in their phone numbers or email addresses.

Sending Your Group Text

Once you have added all the desired contacts to your group text, it’s time to compose your message. Type your message into the text field at the bottom of the screen. You can also add attachments such as photos, videos, or documents by tapping on the camera icon located to the left of the text field.

When you’re ready to send your group text, tap on the blue arrow icon located on the right side of the text field. Your message will be sent to all recipients simultaneously, and any replies will be visible to everyone in the group.


Creating a group text on your iPhone is a simple and efficient way to stay connected with multiple contacts at once. By following these step-by-step instructions, you can easily create and send a group text message from your iPhone’s Messages app. Save time and effort by utilizing this feature for planning events, coordinating with colleagues, or simply staying in touch with friends and family.
