“I have a court case and really need to print some texts on my iPhone. Is this possible? How can I do this?”
This is a typical case where you need to print text messages from iPhone. Although there are numerous messaging apps for iPhone now, still people use the native Messages app to communicate with their family, friends, colleagues, and clients, etc. Some valuable text conversations often need to be backed up and sometimes printed to paper for preservation or as evidence.
However, Apple has added many fun features to the Messages app, but there is no printing. So you need to take some workarounds to print text messages from iPhone. Now read this article to find them out and try them.
Note: When you are printing iPhone messages for a court case or other legal purposes, please consult a legal professional and confirm the specific requirements for printing.
If you only want to keep the text of your conversations and don’t care about the details of the time, date, and sender, you can copy and paste the text into another app that supports printing, and then print it out. Such apps include Notes, Mails, Reminders and so on.
This is a simple and convenient approach, but the text printed out using it cannot be used as evidence in court.
To print text messages from iPhone for court, you need to print them in an unequivocal format, along with the date and time, as well as details of the sender and receiver. It is a great option to take a screenshot of your message text and then print it out. Nevertheless, when you have a mass of text messages to print, you’d better consider a different approach.
It’s not difficult to print one or two text messages using the previous two methods, but using them to print a large number of text messages is no small challenge. At this point, you need to turn to a tool that can help you export and print your entire text conversations together with the contact, time, date, and other information at once.

In order to protect the privacy of the sender and receiver of the text message, the phone service provider will generally refuse your request unless you can give a good reason or present a legal document from the court.
