Change Your iMessage Colour by Restarting Your Phone

The first thing to do is to restart your phone. You can do this by long-pressing the power button. Once your phone comes back on, try to send a message to your friend. If this method doesn’t work, follow the instructions from your settings panel below.

From Your Settings Panel

  • Clear the ‘Message’ app. Do this by removing it from your recently visited apps (go to your home screen and swipe up on the app)
  • Next visit settings, tap on Message
  •  Turn off your iMessage option and turn it back ON after a few seconds
  • Now open the Messages app and then try to resend a message to your friend.
  • However, instead of opening your recent chat, tap on the top right corner of your screen, search for their name and start a conversation.

Works like magic. This should definitely reset your iMessage color and take the default back to the blue bubble for Messages.
