[HDGEM] SMS AND IMESSAGE

  • SMS messages are only sent over cellular networks. iMessages can be sent over cellular networks or Wi-Fi
  • SMS messages are not encrypted. iMessages are protected with end-to-end encryption, meaning that they can't be intercepted and read by third parties like phone companies or law enforcement agencies.
IMessages can only be sent between iOS devices and Macs, and are represented in the Messages app with blue word balloons. SMS sent to other devices, like Android phones, don't use iMessage and are shown using green word balloons.
IMessage was originally designed to allow iOS users to send each other SMSes without using their monthly allotment of text messages. Most phone companies now offer unlimited text messages.
