From an Israeli site, the rumor comes up like smoke that Apple is on the way in Siri update. According to the rumors, it would introduce capabilities of contextual learning as well as integrate deeply when it comes to iCloud or iMessage.

With better showcases video, the new edition will be included in the iOS 11, as per Jimmy Iovine, the head of Apple Music. This new edition will come up with ‘better showcases video’ for iOS 11 version. Apple Music will offer users some original content such as ‘Carpool Karaoke: The series.’

1) Go to settings icon and tap it (it will be present in the home menu)

2) Tap on Messages tab in the settings.

3) Now the first option will be iMessage right to it if it shows Green color then you iMessage is active, tap on the green color and it changes to white which indicates iMessage is disabled.

Steps to disable iMessage remotely without your device. For this you will will need the sim card with which iMessage is linked. This is an even simple method to disable iMessage but using this will disable iMessage on all the devices.

1) Go to this web address https://selfsolve.apple.com/deregister-imessage.

In this process you will need Apple ID with which the device is connected and its password. This process is thebest way you have if your device is lost or stolen. You can select any device linked to your Apple ID and disable only in that particular device. This process is more flexible to use than the second option where iMessage will be disabledon all devices.

1) Login to https://supportprofile.apple.com/ with the Apple ID and Password.

2) Select the device you what the iMessage to be disabled and click “Unregister” button.
