How To Change iMessage Bubble Color On iPhone And iPad


Everyone loves customization, it gives you the feeling always that your iPhone or iPad is really yours. Many iPhone and iPad users have done a lot of personalization to their phone that anyone can recognize at a glance that it is theirs, anytime and anywhere.

Changing the color of the iMessage bubble is one of those customizations. If you’re a part of the global community that loves pink, you surely do want to send your iMessage in a pink bubble color as well.

No doubt about this, iMessage is probably one of the best messaging apps, its only available for iPhone and iPad users and can permit the sending of gifs, videos and of course texts.

Unfortunately, even with the release of IOS 14, Apple has done nothing to incorporate a built-in iMessage bubble color changing configuration. It seems to me their developers never think of that. But of course, there are several ways around that and you can have your iMessage bubble colored just the way you want.

Can I Change The Color Of My iMessage Bubbles On My iPhone?

Yes is the answer you need. Although there’s no specific setting or configuration on your iPhone that permits you to do with a switch of a button, but it’s still possible.

The best part is that you don’t have to jailbreak your iPhone to have your iMessage bubble colored differently, all you need is an app. Some third party applications, easily accessible on App store and very compatible with iPhone can with minimal effort from you change the look of your iMessage bubble color.

You would have noticed that default iMessage bubble color is either a blue or a green color. iMessage was built specifically for message interactions between iPhone users, because its build is somewhat different from a normal messaging app. For instance, the iMessage app can send messages using an internet connection as well as cellular voice service.
