Determine if group SMS is enabled on iOS


Does anyone know of a way to return whether group sms is enabled on an iOS device? We have a need to send a group SMS but do not want each recipient to see each others phone number. The thought is to disable this feature in the application if group SMS is enabled. If there are any other thoughts of how to accomplish this without keying off the iOS setting please let me know.

Thanks, Donta


Counter question: What exactly is this and how do I turn it on or off? Is this on by default? I am a iOS user for a few years now, but have no idea about all this :wink:


It’s called Group Messaging under Messages in iOS settings. Not sure if this is enabled by default.
