What is MMS

MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia content to and from mobile phones over a cellular network. To some extent, MMS extends the core capability of SMS and it allows the exchange of text messages greater than 160 characters in length. Compared with SMS, MMS enables users to not only deliver texts, but also different types of media, like short videos (Learn: How to Retrieve Deleted Videos from iPhone), one image a slideshow of multiple images or audio.

What is iMessage

iMessage is an instant messenger service developed by Apple Inc. It’s supported by Messages application in iOS 5 and later and OS X Mountain and later. It enables users to send texts (Learn: How to Retrieve Deleted Texts from iPhone 5), documents, photos (Learn: How to Copy Photos from iPhone to PC), videos, contact information and more between different iOS devices. In Messages, the user's sent communication is aligned to the right, with replies from other people on the left. A user can see if the other iMessage user is typing a message (Learn: How to Get Back Deleted Messages on iPhone), pale gray ellipsis appears in the text bubble of the other user when a reply is started.

iMessage is different from Messages. On iPhones, green buttons and text bubbles indicate SMS-based communication; on all iOS devices, blue buttons and text bubbles indicate iMessage communication.
