The difference between an iMessage and text message isn’t obvious, but the features of iMessage certainly make it stand out. You can send text messages and iMessage with a data plan, but you can also send iMessages with wifi. Of course, iMessages can only be sent to other iPhones, but if you’ve run out of data or texts for the month, iMessage will get you though. We’ll go over more differences between iMessage and text message below. We’re also going to cover how to turn on iMessage, how to turn off Read receipts, and finally, how to set iMessage up on Mac, so you can stay in contact via iPhone, iPad, and Mac computer. Here’s how to set up and turn on iMessage.
