As noted by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Federighi has responded with quite a bit of detail on the subject, saying although Apple has been considering the feature for quite a while, there are still some concerns that have so far hindered the introduction of such a feature.
Since Federighi said that scheduled iMessages is something Apple “continues to consider,” it is quite likely we eventually see it in a future iOS update.
