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.

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.

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.

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.
