Apple will adopt a technological standard next year that will allow text messaging to operate more smoothly between its iOS devices and Android devices.

For more than a year, the company has pushed back on the standard known as RCS (rich communication services), an upgrade over standard SMS and MMS texting that has backing from the GSM Association. The technology allows more texting features to be shared over phones on different platforms.
