I sent someone a message from my iPad through iMessage and I know that my devices always syncronise my iMessage stuff, so it should have popped up on my iPhone that I sent the message (as both were beside me). However, it didn't pop up on my iPhone - there's no evidence of me ever sending the message - but it's still on as Delivered on my iPad.

Has the message been received or was it glitched and never got to the recipient?

When you send a message from iPhone Messages app, all your messages are texts, but not all your texts are SMS.

  • To be correct, SMS never will be iMessage nor will SMS be iMessages. iMessages are sent via Apple's services and SMS are sent via your provider.
