Timing is important for some messages. It may be a birthday wish, reminder or a surprise info. The recipient will value us more if our message is delivered in time. But it is not practical to wait for the correct time and send. Is it ?
Unfortunately, Apple is not providing any option to schedule messages on iPhone. So we should install and use third party apps for the purpose.
