Which messages can I print?

Using TouchCopy, you can copy or print messages from iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. TouchCopy can access sent and received SMS, MMS, iMessage, LINE and WhatsApp messages.

How to Print Text Messages from iPhone - You can print out your iPhone messages from your computer by simply selecting the desired conversation in TouchCopy, and then clicking the "Print" button. From here your standard print settings page will open for you to print the selected conversation. TouchCopy will print your messages in the same format that they are displayed on your iOS device.

TouchCopy will print all the vital information from your conversations:

  • Texts sent and received.
  • Attached media (emojis, photos, reactions, etc.).
  • Contact details: name, image (optional) and number (optional).
  • Times and dates on which the messages were sent/received.

If you do not wish to print your entire conversation, TouchCopy lets you choose the dates of the messages you wish to print by using the "Filter Dates" (PC) or "Date Range" (Mac) button in TouchCopy.

Customizing your printout

TouchCopy provides a few options when you're considering printing out your messages.

Long conversations can take up lots of paper, so you can reduce the amount of paper needed by getting more messages on each piece of paper. In TouchCopy Preferences (Mac), you can alter the size of the text (bigger for easier reading, or smaller for more text on a page), and a "Compact Layout" which will reduce the amount of white space between messages (again, allowing for more messages per page).

Check out all TouchCopy Settings to see how else you can customize your message exports and printouts.
