iMessage is Apple's built-in instant messaging (IM) service. It lives inside the Messages app on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. On the iPhone it works alongside — and often replaces — carrier SMS and MMS. On the iPad provides similar functionality, allowing you to send text, picture, video, voice memo, location, contact, and other types of messages to anyone else using an iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
The United States Secret Service says that it may disable iMessage on Secret Service members' work phones going forward due to those messages being lost.
