As far as the observations are made, it is noticed that the beta version does not allow scheduling iPhone messages in iOS 18 for more than two weeks from the present date. However, it is still not approved that this will be a “by-default” feature or just one of the bugs to be visited in the testing series. Until the final release arrives, we can hold off on pre-writing your bestie’s birthday notes in advance. 

Unlike Apple’s AI, all the devices will be able to access Send Later when iOS 18 officially launches. Be it iOS 17 or other versions scheduling a text prior to the final date is soon going to be an accessible feature for all Apple users
