Apple is seemingly ready to support RCS on iPhones starting 2024
It finally looks like the RCS (Rich Communication Service) battle will see its end as Apple has hinted that starting in 2024, iPhones will start supporting RCS. While this is a great update for users across the world, it does raise a lot of questions. But, first, let’s talk about what it actually means for everyone if this change is brought into effect.
Firstly, the gap between iPhone-to-iPhone and iPhone-to-Android messaging will be erased. Basically, if your contact uses an Android device and he/she sends you a message on your iPhone, they will be afforded the same features that iMessage users have, like read receipts, high-quality media sharing, group messaging, and even location sharing within the messenger.
