So you went on a holiday or trip with your friends or family, and they're now asking for the photos of them that you took on your iPhone via text. If they had an iPhone like you, you can easily Airdrop photos form iPhone to iPhone in a matter of seconds or send them in iMessage.
But, if they're an Android user, it's quite difficult to send the photos.
Don't worry, though! We'll show you how to send pictures from your iPhone to an Android phone via text in a few seconds.
Multimedia Messaging Service, also known as MMS, was widely used before the 2010s to send images, videos, and other types of media formats. With the advent of instant messaging platforms like WhatsApp, iMessage, Telegram, and others, MMS became less popular.

In fact, you can send an MMS from your iPhone too. Here's how to send pictures from iPhone to Android via text:
Step 1. Open "Settings" and locate "Messages."
Step 2. Open "Messages" and select and enable "MMS Messaging" under "SMS/MMS."
Step 3. Go back to the home screen and then compose a new message.
Step 4. Select the contact you want to send the pictures to as MMS.
Step 5. Now, select the "Photos" icon and select the photos that you want to send.
