This Tweak Only Sends iMessage Read Receipt When You Reply Back


Read receipts have been part of numerous internet messaging apps for a long time. The point is to notify the sender that the recipient has read your message. Not just that, this handy staple feature also notifies others the time at which you have read their message. iMessage also features read receipts which you're already familiar with. In iOS 10, you have the ability to disable the feature through Settings. However, doing so would also prevent you from seeing if they have read your message or not. With this nifty new jailbreak tweak, you can send read receipts whenever you want. Let's dive in to see some more details on the new jailbreak tweak.

Jailbreak Tweak Allows You To Send Read Receipts In iMessage Whenever You're Ready

We have all been in a condition when sending read receipts was not the best option. The tweak is called Delay Read Receipts that allows you to send read receipts at will. If you have the tweak installed, the other person will not be delivered the read receipt unless you have sent a reply or started typing it. This allows you to read messages without anyone finding out if you have read their message or not. Once you're ready to reply them back, simply type the message or send it and only then will be the read receipt delivered.

So it's pretty simple yet admirably convenient.
