Why Does iMessage says delivered on Laptop but not my phone:

1. Filtered Messages

filter messages

If you’re not able to see the delivered message from your phone but it’s showing delivered on your laptop, it might be because the filter is enabled on the iMessage app. You need to change it by opening the iMessage app.

all messages imessage

Then you need to click on Filter and then choose the option All Messages from the choices displayed. Immediately you’ll be able to see the delivered messages.

2. You Are Finding on Wrong Number

If you’re finding messages from the wrong number, you need to make sure the correct number is enabled on the device or mobile you’re using.

If it’s not enabled on the current mobile but it’s enabled on another mobile, you’ll not be able to see the delivered message on your current device without enabling it.

Why Does iMessage says delivered on iPhone but not on Mac:

1. Due to Non-Configuration

Due to Non-Configuration

Due to non-configuration problems, you may face the issue where the message says delivered on iPhone but it’s not showing on your MacBook.

If you’ve recently changed the number and didn’t configure that on your MacBook then it won’t show the delivered messages sent from the new number. You need to configure it first to see the delivered messages.

2. It Delays Sometimes

Sometimes due to technical issues, there is a delay in updating the latest delivered message. In that case, you won’t be able to see the delivered messages immediately on your MacBook.

But you need to wait for some time till it gets delivered. Eventually, within a few minutes to a few hours, it will get updated on the MacBook too and after it gets updated you’ll be able to see the delivered messages.

How To Know If You’re Blocked on iMessage:

Here you go with these methods mentioned below:

1. See if blocked by Sending an iMessage:

The first and easy way to check if you are blocked on iMessage by someone, try sending a message through iMessage to his/her phone number. However, on iOS 12 the iMessage you send shows as delivered.

On your iOS 12, once the iMessage is sent to the person and if he has blocked you then be sure that you would not get the ‘Read’ receipt anyway.

Another way you can do by opening the iMessage on Macbook. There are several issues that happen with MacBook. The fact is, while the iMessage on your iPhone if shows as ‘Delivered‘, the MacBook does not show any delivery receipt for the messages on iMessage.

If you still see the iMessage as ‘Delivered’ on your MacBook. Then, maybe the person has not blocked you. Wait for the read receipt to appear for confirming this.

2. Check by sending iMessage [Lower version than iOS 12]:

On the lower version than iOS 12, the detection becomes easier. You can check if you have been blocked by someone just by sending an iMessage to that number.

If the outgoing message fails to send and shows as a green bubble asking to send a normal message. Then you can be sure that the person has blocked you.

Only one condition, just check your internet connection is turned on & working well.

Even if you send the message instead, that message also will not be shown to the person even if it is delivered.

So, failing to send an iMessage is a clear indication that your number is blocked. 

3. Check by Directly calling the Number:

The iMessage gets blocked if the person has blocked your number on your iPhone. That is why, just by calling that mobile number, you can be sure of it.

If the call is directly forwarded to the voicemail after a single ring or without any ring, this might be another sign that the person blocked your number on his/her iPhone. 

Well, if you think this might be for the temporary settings for all callers, then just call the person later or check with another number. If the call rings then be sure that you’re blocked by the person.

Tools To Track iMessage if Delivered or Not:

To track if the iMessage is delivered or not, you need to use Grabify IP Logger and send a shortened link in the iMessage. When the user clicks on the shortened link, Grabify will be able to record the IP address and you’ll be able to see the IP address of the user in the results. From this method, you’ll be able to know that the user has received the message as well as opened it.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

1. Copy any link and then open the Grabify IP Logger. Make sure that the link is valid. Then paste the link and click on Create URL.

2. Next, you need to agree to the terms and conditions of the tool. On the next page, you’ll get the shortened link that you need to send on messages. Send the link to the user.

3. Next, you need to wait for the user to click on it. You need to check the results by accessing the shortened link or by entering the tracking code. After entering the tracking code, click on the Tracking Code button.

4. Immediately, you’ll be taken to the next page where the results will be displayed. You’ll be able to see the IP address of the user in the results thus knowing that the user has opened the message.

You’ll be able to get other information about the user on the Grabify results page too.

🔯 How to Check if the person activated DND:

If all your numbers are known to the person then this might not be helpful as all of your numbers can be blocked by him. In that case, just hide your caller ID and call again.

DND iPhone

On a few carriers, this feature is available, and on some not. There are also other settings that can reject repeated calls only. Still, you can use virtual numbers instead of this check. 

What can be done in this case?… 

If you seek urgency to send any info to the person and calls get auto-rejected, the only thing you can do is by sending a social media message on WhatsApp or Facebook.

If you send any voicemail to the person, those also get blocked and stored in the ‘Blocked Messages’ section under voicemail. There will be no notification to that person who blocked you.

The Bottom Lines:

If you want to know if you’re blocked on iMessage, method 1 which includes the trick of using your MacBook is the best way to check with. Still, if you don’t have the MacBook then calling the number is another solution to check if blocked or not.

  1. Hello!
    I’ve blocked a number recently and I stopped receiving messages from my iPhone but curiously my iPad was receiving while it was block from the mobile..
    For the same reason, this could mean that if someone blocks me on the phone, can still read the messages from the iMac or iPad too? 🤔
