iMessages are text or audio messages, images, and videos that can be transmitted between Apple devices via Wi-Fi. This type of message is hidden by blue speech bubbles and is encrypted. The iPhone Messages software erases audio messages two minutes after they are sent, according to factory settings. It is possible to save the audio messages and set the option to never expire in the smartphone settings.
It is still possible to send SMS/MMS messages when there is no Wi-Fi network available, either to Apple devices or to cellphones from other brands. This sort of message is shown in green speech bubbles and is not encrypted. You must utilize data from the contracted mobile provider to use the service.
