Speaking of iOS 13 new features, the Message app has also gone untouched. One remarkable feature is the update of Memoji. Users are allowed to create a Memoji since iOS 12, but now users can go further and customize the saturation and lightness of Memoji with iOS 13. As a result, chatting in iMessage with Memoji in iOS 13 would have so much fun. Here in this post, we’d like to show you the detailed steps to name a group text on iPhone.

How to Name a Group Text in iOS 13/12 for iPhone

If you want to name a group text, first of all, you need to start a group chat, which means to send a message to all of the group members, otherwise, you won’t see “Enter a Group Name” at all. To do this, open your Messages app, tap on the edit button on the upper right corner. Tap on the “+” button to add contacts. Then enter your message and tap to send. Then, you can follow the steps to name a group text on iPhone.

1. Open Messages app, then tap on the group chat you want to rename.
