With iOS 13 Apple is slowly positioning iMessage as a social network, and adding your name and photo is a step in that direction. This means that you can share your iMessage name and photo with everyone, or just in your contacts. People won’t have to manually update your contact anymore.
iMessage Name & Photo
There are two ways to do this.
- Open Settings, tap Messages, then tap Share Name and Photo. You can use a real photo or a Memoji. You can also share it automatically with Contacts Only, or have the system Always Ask you.
- Open Messages, tap the three dots in the upper right corner. Then, tap Edit Name and Photo. You’ll see the same options as above.
