How to Turn off Read Receipts on Iphone


iPhone has a built-in “how to turn off read receipts feature” that allows its users to know when their iMessage has been delivered and read by their recipient. As useful as this feature could be at times when you need to know whether your urgent message has been conveyed to the concerned person or not, this feature can also be a nuisance at times. For instance, suppose you send a message to your friend asking them to come over instantly because you need their help with something. But they don’t reply right away even though according to your phone’s status update your message has been read by them. You will obviously feel offended. Meanwhile, your friend might be in an actual emergency himself too and would already be feeling awful for not being able to reply. And we all happen to know a friend or a family member who gets upset when they’re not replied right away.
