How to find attachments from a Messages conversation

Messages offers a convenient way to share attachments. If you lose track of one and want to locate it again. It’s easy. Here’s how:

  1. Open the message that has/had the attachment.
  2. Tap the name of the contact at the top of the message. If you’re using iOS 14 or earlier, or iPadOS, tap the Info button.
  3. You’ll see Photos and Links. Touch and hold an image or attachment to show options like Save, Copy, Share, and Delete. (This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)
