However, iPhone Messages app doesn't support AirPrint, this means you can't use AirPrinter to directly print out iPhone messages just like printing some photos.

To print out iPhone messages, actually you have two easy ways to make it, like:

  • Save iPhone text messages to screenshots and then print them as photos by using AirPrint printer.
  • Email the text messages to your email account and print them from email.

However, the two methods only suit for those who only want to print one or two pieces of messages from iPhone, if you want to print out a large number of iPhone texts/SMS, like the whole conversation, all the text threads, they are not suit for you.

Therefore, in this guide, we will focus on how to print out multiple or all text messages from iPhone, no matt how many messages you want to print, you can get solutions here.

  • iPhone XR

Part 1: Best Way or App to Print Text Messages from iPhone

Just like we mentioned above, you can’t print iPhone messages with AirPrint, this means you need to export text messages from iPhone and save as pdf, txt or html files firstly. Therefore, the best App to print our text iPhone from iPhone is the best App to export iPhone messages. As long as you export text messages from iPhone to computer, you just need to print them with your printer.

The app to export iPhone messages, to be honest, you have to use some third-party tools, because there is no any Apple built-in tool that has this function, for example, iTunes can back up your whole iPhone to computer as backups, you need to use some third-party tool to extract the text messages from backups to computer; iCloud allows you back up iPhone messages to iCloud server automatically, and restore the backed up messages back to iPhone again, while you never can see what you have backed up, let alone to export these messages.

Therefore, when it comes to print out text messages from iPhone, you have to use some third-party tool, and most of them are paid software.
