One of the biggest selling points of iOS 10 is the much-improved Messages app. With plenty of amazing features like bubble effects, digital touch, it has been smartly primed to enhance your iMessaging experience.
Among so many gorgeous features that the Messages app has come with, the ability to enable/disable individual Read Receipt has caught my attention more than anything else.
When Read Receipt is turned on, people are notified when you have read their messages. Though it’s very helpful as it lets the sender of the message know that his/her message has been read, quite a few people– including me don’t find it always so convenient due to some personal reasons.
How to Enable/Disable Individual Read Receipts in Messages App in iOS 10 on iPhone and iPad
Step #1. Launch Messages app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step #2. Next up, you have to tap on the contact. (If you have not communicated with the person yet, then you need to send an iMessage to him as usual.)
Step#3. Now, you will have to tap on the “i” from the top right corner.
Step #4. Finally, Turn OFF the switch next to Send Read Receipts.
At any time, if you want to disable read receipt, simply follow all the steps mentioned above and turn off the Send Read Receipt switch.
Just like iOS 9, you can enable/disable read receipt for all. To do so, you need to open Settings → Messages.
Turn Off Send Read Receipts.
