Have you ever experienced that you want to find a certain piece of text messages which contains some specific information you want, but have no idea about how? Here in this tutorial I would like to introduce two different ways to search a messages particularly on the iPhone.
Method 1: Search Text Messages on the iPhone with Spotlight
> Tap and swipe to the right to bring up Spotlight Search from the Home screen.
> Tap the search bar to enter the information you are searching for.
> When the search results appear swipe down to scroll through the list to locate the Messages section of the search results.
Note: When you search using Spotlight, results matching your query will appear from emails, messages, apps, and other content on the iPhone.
> When you find the information you are looking for just tap the message containing the information to open the text message.
Method 2: Search Text Messages with Messages on the iPhone
If you want to restrict your search to only text messages, the method described below is the best.
> Tap Messages to open the messaging application.
> While viewing the Messages list swipe down with your finger to expose the search box.
> Enter the search string in the search box and the results list will automatically update as you type.
> When you find the message containing the information you are looking for, simply tap the message to open it.
