Real question: is it iMessages or just Messages? I thought they started as iMessages but then dropped the i a few years back. I could be wrong.

Every time I read iMessages, I think iWatch. ?

Edit: is iMessage a type of Message??

Thanks for making me look! You are right, it's just Messages. Never realized that. Coming from someone who hates it when people call the Apple Watch, iWatch! Cringe
The app is Messages, but iMessage is the Apple to Apple messaging service.
