The messaging app on iOS 13 gets a custom contact profile feature for WhatsApp style. It gives you a separate place where you can have a different name and display image (which will not be related to your iCloud account). Now that someone does not have your details in your contact list, they can still see your name and your picture (and you can have full control over who should share those details). How to Create a Custom iMessage Profile on iOS 1
Create Custom iMessage Profile on iPhone in iOS 13
When you first start the Messaging app on iOS 13, you'll see a new pop-up message asking for you want to create a new profile in the Messaging app. But if you've missed that part, go to Settings to create the profile later.
Step 1 : Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step 2 : Press Messages .
Step 3 : Press Share name and photo .
Step 4 : You are now prompted to select the profile picture. You can choose a Memoji avatar that you have already created, your iCloud profile picture or an Animoji character. Press All Images to select an image from the camera roll. To take a new picture, press the camera button.
Step 5 : On the next screen, you can edit the image. You can scale it to fit into the circular frame. Press Select button when finished.
Step 6 : Then it's all about the details. Tap the fields next to the profile picture to enter the first and last name. Then turn on the switch next to Part name and picture .
Step 7 : The last thing to choose is who to share this data with. There are three options: Only contacts Always ask and Some . It is best to keep these details only in the contacts, or anyone who gets your number from a spam directory and messages, you will immediately see your screen and your name. The Always Ask option gives you the greatest control over who sees this data, but it can be boring to go through the beginning of each conversation.

This feature will now behave based on the options you selected in the last step.
If you select the Always ask prompt, you see a small banner at the top of a New Call asking if you want to share the contact information with the other person (or people in the group cat). If you just select Contacts or Someone, you don't need to do anything in the future.
