It is true that more and more mobile data rates are unlimited or have a large amount of data that we can use each month. And yet there are times when we will want to decrease the amount of data we use. One way to do this is to reduce the quality of the images we send through iMessage, let’s see how.
A resource that we can easily turn on and off
By default, iMessage does not compress the images we send, ensuring that the person on the other end of the conversation is receiving the highest quality possible. This is an advantage, especially if you compare it with other applications in the messaging scene, which you may sometimes want to disable.
Fortunately, Apple offers us the possibility of activating certain compressions in the images for decrease the consumption of mobile data that we make when we send
- We open the app Adjustment on our iPhone or iPad.
- We entered Posts.
- we activate Poor quality images.
Ready. From there the images will receive a compression which although maintain the overall appearance of the photo, significantly lose weight. With this setup, we can use the Messages app to send photos with significantly lower data consumption, although we want to turn this option off again if the other person needs, for example, to print the images we send.
It is clear that being able to choose between compressing the images you send or sending the originals directly is the most interesting. A simple system with which we can get the best of both options depending on our needs at all times. As easy as going to the Settings app.
