How to program text messages on iPhone

Being able to create and program messages on your iPhone that are then sent automatically at the scheduled time, can be of great help. While it is a relatively easy function using applications such as Spark, doing so with text messages turns out to be somewhat more cumbersome.

In this article we show you some ways to make the programming of a text message on your iPhone a little easier so you can make it a habit if it makes you more productive.

Is it possible to program the texts?

Yes and no. There are some services available, such as Scheduled App, an application that you can download from the App Store to program texts, but it has some restrictions.

In fact, the application uses an additional service to complete the task in such a way that the recipients who receive the text will not know who sent it, unless you remember to sign the final part of it, and not because of the origin of the number Phone

Then there is the fact that to use the automatic text delivery function, you must belong to the Premium plan, which has an additional cost of 1.99 per month. The free option allows you to configure messages to be sent at a specific time.

It can be really useful, but if you are willing to use the existing Reminders application on your iPhone, you can achieve the same effect without having to install any software additional on your device and obviously without costs.

Use reminders to program texts

Although reminders cannot send text messages, they can be a good way to write one as if it were in draft mode and then ask you to send it at the right time.

To do so, open Reminders and tap on the + icon that you will see on the screen. Select Reminder in the options box that appears and move it to the page where you can create a message.


In the upper fields, you will see the Color and Share options. Click on the latter and click on Add person. Enter the name of the person you want to contact. Then, press the Remember in one day option and select Alarm. Then enter the time and date you wish to send the message to.

Once these steps are completed, scroll down to the Notes area at the bottom of the page and keep it pressed until you can enter text. Now write the message you want to send. Once finished, press ready.

When the reminder appears on your screen, alerting about the text message of the person in question, double click on it to open the message, touch it again to make the information icon appear. Press it and scroll to the Notes section.

Finally, all that remains to be done is to go to the Messages application, start a new text, select the recipient and press and hold the text field until the context menu appears.


Paste your message, press the Send icon (green circle with a white arrow inside) and your text will be delivered at the time you originally planned it. The process is free and will allow you to ignore it.
