Can You Tell if an iMessage Is Delivered When Someone’s Phone Is Off?
Hey there! So, you’re wondering what happens with iMessages when your friend’s phone is turned off, right? Let’s break it down!
Three Important Things for iMessage Delivery
- Phone On: First off, your friend’s phone needs to be turned on. If it’s off, iMessage won’t show the “delivered” message.
- iMessage On: Another thing is that they must have iMessage turned on. If not, your message might become a regular text message (SMS).
- Internet Connection: Lastly, their phone needs to be connected to the internet, like Wi-Fi or mobile data. Without internet, iMessages can’t travel to their phone.
What Happens When the Phone Is Off?
So, if your friend’s phone is off, your iMessage won’t immediately say “delivered.” It will sort of hang out in the iMessage world, waiting for your friend’s phone to wake up and connect to the internet again.
What if They’re Offline for a While?
Now, if your friend’s phone stays off for a while, don’t worry! Apple’s got your back. They store your iMessages on their servers for up to 30 days, just in case. So, when your friend’s phone finally comes back online, your iMessage will make its way there, and you’ll see that “delivered” message.
Can iMessages Get Through When Your Phone Is Off?
Hey, let’s talk about what happens when your phone is off but you’re still using iMessage on other Apple gadgets.
What If You Have More Than One Apple Device?
Okay, so sometimes, you’re a tech wizard with lots of Apple gadgets like iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, or even Apple Watches. When you’re signed in with the same Apple ID on all these devices, iMessage can do something interesting.
The Magic of iMessage on Multiple Devices
Let’s say you’ve set up iMessage on your fancy MacBook Pro. Now, when someone sends you an iMessage, it doesn’t just go to your iPhone; it also shows up on your MacBook.
No Power? No Problem!
Here’s the cool part: your iPhone can be snoozing (turned off) or not connected to any network, but those iMessages will still pop up on your MacBook.
So, even if your phone has been taking a nap for hours, you can still receive messages on your other Apple gadgets. But, just remember, the person sending the message might think you got it on your phone, and that could be a bit confusing.
What If You Get Blocked?
By the way, if someone has blocked you on iMessage, things work a bit differently. But that’s a whole other story.
Summing It Up
So, to sum it all up, if your friend’s phone is off, iMessage won’t tell them that the message is delivered until they wake their phone up.
But if they’re using other Apple devices with iMessage turned on, like your MacBook, they might still get your messages even if their phone is having a nap.
