Want to send your closest friend text message on his birthday right on the stroke of midnight? But we know iPhone doesn’t allow you to do that and you have to remain awake until midnight. Sometimes even professionals and business persons too need to schedule their messages on iPhone, but currently, they can’t do that.
But don’t feel losing out of scheduling your text messages on iPhone as there is an app called ‘Delayd’ which will come to your rescue. This app is developed by Tinyyo Limited and you even don’t need to do a jailbreak for it. Just follow the instructions we are giving, and you will be then able to schedule text messages on your iPhone without any fuss.
Remember one thing that when you download Delayd you will get ten free SMS credits, and once you used them all, you need to purchase credits which are available at a very low price. If you want more freedom from credits, then invite your friends to use Delayd so that you can schedule messages to your friend’s group.
How to Schedule Text Messages on iPhone without Jailbreak by Using Delayd App
Step #1. Download Delayd app from iTunes and then install and launch on your iPhone.
Step #2. When Delayd prompts you to grant access to your contacts and send you notifications give it the access because without that you won’t be able to schedule your messages.
Step #3. Enter your country name and mobile number then tap on Next.
Step #4. Now Delayd will send you a 4-digit verification code on your cell phone which you need to use for the authentication process.
Step #5. Enter your profile name (not more than ten characters) and also add chat icon from existing options or by adding from your photo gallery. Make sure tap on Finish.
Note: Over here Delayd will again ask you to access your photos, allow access and select the picture you feel suitable for your Delayed profile.
Once the above process is over Delayd will say Thanks for signing. Now the real fun starts.
Step #6. Tap on SMS at the bottom of your screen and then on Compose SMS to write a new SMS.
Step #7. Now, Tap on ‘+’ icon to add the contact. Over here you will get two options, one is to ‘Add from Contacts, ‘ and the other is ‘Add Group.’ Choose the option, which you require.
Step #8. Next, you need to tap on the arrow next to the option to Set send time. Then you have to manually set the Time. Make sure tap on Done.
Step #9. Now, Tap on the arrow next to Non recurring. Then you will have seven options to choose from: Non recurring, Recur daily, Recure Weekdays, Recure weekly, Recur fortnightly, Recure monthly, Recur Yearly. In the End, Tap on Done.
Step #10. Type your message in ‘Compose message here…’ field. Remember you are allowed only 145 characters in a single go.
Step #11. Once you type the message tap on ‘Schedule’ button at the bottom of your screen.
Now your message is scheduled and will be delivered to the recipient on the time of the schedule. If you are using this app for the first time, you can even call the recipient to confirm whether he received it or not.
So, like you can schedule your Instagram posts from your computer and smartphone, you can even schedule your text messages from your iPhone and that too without a jailbreak.
