iMessage allows users to send texts, documents, photos, contact information, and group messages over Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, or LTE to other iOS or OS X users, thus providing an alternative to standard SMS/MMS messaging for most users with devices running iOS 5 or later.
iMessage is accessible through the Messages app on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 5 or later or on a Mac running OS X Mountain Lion or later.
iMessage-specific functions operate only between machines running iOS 5 or later or running Mountain Lion or later, but, on the iPhone. Messages can use SMS to communicate with non-iOS devices, or with other iPhones when iMessage is unavailable.
On iPhones, green buttons and text bubbles indicate SMS-based communication; on all iOS devices, blue buttons and text bubbles indicate iMessage communication.
