No third party application can send a text message with no human approval, as iOS is not as loose as android. Therefore messages scheduled through ext scheduler apps will not be able to send messages independently. Such apps would need approval from the owner to activate the messages scheduled. This is a security system designed by Apple, to protect iPhone users from unauthorized messaging.

Considering the limitations mentioned above, totally scheduling a delayed text message with no manual approval on iOS is not feasible. To be able to remove this limitation from your iPhone, you need to jailbreak the device. iPhone lets you schedule your Imessage to be sent later when jailbroken.

What does it mean to jailbreak an iPhone?

Jailbreaking is the term used for bypassing the limitations apply places on the iOS and taking total control of the Apple Device. A jailbroken device allows you to install tweaks and apps that aren’t approved by Apple and displace the strict security systems that Apple designed with iOS.

Jailbreaking is different from unlocking, which allows the replacement of carriers while maintaining the same device. As of now, the technique of jailbreaking an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is not illegal in the United States. However, Apple sees jailbreaking as the termination of its warranty, so if anything goes a-wire during the procedure, you cannot hold them responsible.
