Scheduling text messages is not a built-in feature in the default Messages app on iPhones. However, you can use Siri Shortcuts, a third-party app, to achieve this functionality. Here’s a general guide:

  1. Install the Shortcuts App:
    • If you don’t have the Shortcuts app installed on your iPhone, download it from the App Store.
  2. Find or Create a Text Message Shortcut:
    • Open the Shortcuts app and either find an existing shortcut that allows scheduling text messages or create a new one.
  3. Set up the Shortcut:
    • If creating a new shortcut, use the actions provided by the Shortcuts app to compose a message and set the date and time for sending.
    • You may need to grant necessary permissions to the Shortcuts app.
  4. Run the Shortcut:
    • Once the shortcut is set up, you can run it manually to schedule a text message.
  5. Add to Home Screen (Optional):
    • You can add the shortcut to your home screen for easy access.

Keep in mind that the availability of features and apps can change, so it’s a good idea to check the App Store and the Shortcuts app for updates or new solutions. Additionally, Apple may introduce new features in iOS updates that could include built-in support for scheduling text messages.
