As you might be aware, sending multiple Photos on iPhone or iPad via Messages app is limited to 20 photos. However, you can use the steps listed below to trick your iPhone into sending more than 20 photos via iMessage, by-passing the 20 photos limit.
iOS Photo Limitations
Thanks to the iOS 9 update, you can now finally send multiple photos via email on your iPhone, the annoying 5 photo limit which used to frustrate users is gone. However, there is still a limit on the number of photos that you can send via the Messages app on your iPhone or iPad.
While the photos app allows you to choose unlimited photos, you won’t be able to share those photos using the Messages app. The option to Share Photos via text messages disappears from the Share Menu when you select more than 20 photos in the Photos app.
However, you can still get away with the 20 photos limitation for text Messages on iPhone by following the steps listed below.
Send More than 20 Photos via iMessage
Follow the steps below to send more than 20 photos using the Messages app on your iPhone or iPad.
1. Tap on the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad
2. While you are in the Photos app, tap on Albums tab located at the bottom of your screen.
3. Tap on Camera roll (assuming photos that you want to share are located here).
4. Now, tap on the Select button located at the top right corner of your screen
5. Select the photos that you want to send by tapping on them or sliding your finger across the photos (say 22 photos or more!).
6. After selecting photos, tap on the Share button located at the bottom left corner of your screen.
As mentioned above, you won’t see the text Message option on the Share Menu that pops-up, as you have selected more than the 20 photos allowed that you can attach to a text message on iPhone.
7. Simply, tap on Copy and press the Home button on your iPhone to go back to the home screen.
8. Now, open up the Messages app on your iPhone
9. Tap on any existing conversation or tap on the new message icon to open a new message window.
10. Tap and hold in the Message section until you see the Paste option and tap on it.
Magically, all the 22 photos that you had copied from the Photos app will appear in your text message.
11. Type a short message, add the recipients address and tap on send.
This is how you can by-pass the 20 photos limit for text messages on your iPhone and still manage to send as many photos as you want via a text message. However, you need to remember that pasting more photos into the body of email message will slow down the process of sending the text message.
