A printed copy of a detailed text message might be needed in many different situations. Sometimes, you may get your important iPhone SMS printing for a court, for example:
“I have a court case and really need to print some texts on my iPhone 4S. Is this possible? How can I do this?”
For all of the features that iOS provided, one important one is still lacking: you can’t directly print your text messages from your iPhone. Luckily, there’s always a way to print text messages from iPhone. Here, I will show you 2 options that you can use to print iPhone text messages.
If you don’t have a lot of text messages to print, taking a screenshot and emailing it to yourself can be an easy option. To do this, open the text messages you want to print. Then press the “Home” and “Sleep/Wake” buttons at the same time. Your iPhone will put the screenshot in the Camera Roll and you can email it to yourself to be printed later.
Nevertheless, for long conversation or a bunch of text messages, the screenshot method will not make you satisfied. It only shows a short snippet of your message conversation. To print a full messages list from iPhone, you’d better make use of a third-party application like Jihosoft Mobile Recovery for iOS. It gains you access to data on your iPhone and the iTunes backup. You can extract messages and then print out them completely.
1. Download, install and run Jihosoft iOS Data Recovery on your computer. And then connect your iPhone to the computer.
2. Once your iPhone’s detected, click “Start Scan” to let the program scan data on your iPhone.
3. After scan, you can preview the text messages, including deleted text messages in the scan result.
4. Finally, click on the “Print” button to print out text messages from your iPhone.
If you have synced your iPhone with iTunes, Jihosoft Mobile Recovery for iOS allows you access text messages by extracting data in iTunes backup. You can print SMS messages from iPhone even without the need to connect your iPhone to the computer.
