Ipad Not Receiving Imessages

Go to Settings Your Name iCloud and switch 'Messages' off, wait a few seconds, then switch it back on. You can try this on just your iPhone, just your iPad, or both devices. If your messages still aren't syncing, continue to the next step.

Make sure your iPad doesn’t have the number associated with iMessage. (Can be checked through Settings → Messages → Send & Receive). Once done, your iPad should stop receiving iMessages. Are you not receiving sound/audio notifications for iMessage? Check that your device isn't set to Silent Mode or Do Not Disturb. Both modes would silence phone calls as well as app notifications.

Try these steps first

  1. Restart your device:
  2. Check your network connection. To send a message as iMessage or MMS, you need a cellular data or Wi-Fi connection. To send an SMS message, you need cellular network connection. If you turn on Wi-Fi Calling, you can send SMS messages over Wi-Fi.
  3. Check with your carrier to see if the type of message you’re trying to send, like MMS or SMS, is supported.
  4. If you’re trying to send group MMS messages on an iPhone, go to Settings > Messages and turn on MMS Messaging. If you don't see an option to turn on MMS Messaging or Group Messaging on your iPhone, then your carrier might not support this feature.
  5. Make sure that your device has enough space to receive images and videos.
  6. Make sure that you entered the correct phone number or email address for the contact.

If your iMessage is not working or not activating on iPhone or iPad, it could be for a number of different reasons, including the iMessage waiting-for-activation error that’s common to many users. However, we'll also cover how to fix iMessage when it's saying the text was not delivered or if your iPhone is not receiving texts. Fix 1 and 2 were already implemented on my IOS devices, but my iPad does not receive iMessages unless I send from the ipad. If I send from the iphone, the ipad does not sync. I do not wish to try fix 3 as I have a lot of messages I do not want to lose.

If you see a Waiting for Activation alert, learn what to do.

If you see a green message bubble

If you see a green message bubble instead of a blue one, then that message was sent using MMS/SMS instead of iMessage. There are several reasons for this:

  • The person that you sent the message to doesn't have an Apple device.
  • iMessage is turned off on your device or on your recipient’s device. To check if iMessage is turned on for your device, go to Settings > Messages > iMessage.
  • iMessage is temporarily unavailable on your device or on your recipient’s device.

Learn the difference between iMessage and MMS/SMS messages.

If you receive messages on one device but not the other

If you have an iPhone and another iOS device, like an iPad, your iMessage settings might be set to receive and start messages from your Apple ID instead of your phone number. To check if your phone number is set to send and receive messages, go to Settings > Messages, and tap Send & Receive.

If you don't see your phone number, you can link your iPhone number to your Apple ID so you can send and receive iMessages from your phone number. You can also set up Text Message Forwarding so you can send and receive MMS and SMS messages on all of your Apple devices.

If you’re in a group message and stop receiving messages, check if you left the conversation. Open Messages and tap the group message. If you see a message that says you left the conversation, then either you left the conversation or you were removed from the group message.
