Amazon has an incredible selection of products, many of which are very similar to one another. So if you are discussing something with someone, then you may be looking for a way to share that product through a text or email to make sure you are both discussing the same item.
The Amazon app makes it very easy to shop, or save items for later, but it can be difficult to share a link to a product if you haven’t done it before. Our guide below will walk you through the steps required to share a link to an Amazon product from the Amazon app on your iPhone.
Sharing Product Links from the Amazon App on the iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 9.2. The version of the Amazon app being used is the most current version available at the time this article was written. Note that newer versions of the Amazon app have moved the Share button to the product picture.
Note that these steps are specifically for sharing from the Amazon shopping app. These steps will not work if you are browsing Amazon’s website in Safari, or if you are using a different Amazon app, such as the Kindle or Amazon Video app.

Many of the different apps and services on your iPhone have ways that you can share information, including some that you may not have previously considered. For example, you can share voicemail messages through email or text message. This can be a simple way to get a voicemail message into a format that you can use on a computer, or as a file that you can save.
