iPhone Tricks: 3 Ways To Disable Read Receipts on iMessage

In iOS devices (iPhone and iPad), you get a Delivered receipt when your message has reached its recipient via the iMessage app. Your conversation shows as read when the recipients reads it. While this feature is awesome, there could be times when you just want to read incoming messages without the the sender knowing. This is only achievable when you disable "read receipts" on your iPhone. So we will show you this iPhone trick on different ways to disable read receipt.

1. TURN OFF READ RECEIPTS OPTION

✔ Go to Settings
✔️ Tap on Messages
✔️ Toggle off the Send Read Receipts option.

Once this is done, your recipient will no longer see a read receipt when you read your message. This also means that you can’t see theirs either. Note that this trick can be used on whatsapp so that people won't know when you read their chat.

2. USE 3D TOUCH “PEEK” TRICK

This option is for those that their iPhone comes with 3D Touch (iPhone 6 – iPhone 7 Plus), all you need to do is just press hard on a thread to sneak a peek at its contents. This will let you read new messages without marking them as read. Also, when you 3D Touch an iMessage thread in the conversation view in the Messages app, you can view recent and new messages from its conversation thread.

3. DISABLE READ RECEIPTS FOR SPECIFIC CONTACTS

iMessage allows you to disable read receipts for specific contacts instead of for everyone if you please. Here’show to do it:

Open iMessage, then go to a specific conversation you wish to disable read receipts for.
Tap on More Details on the top right corner, shown as an “I” icon.
Toggle off Send Receipts. from EmmyCN
