Q.

When will MyFord Touch be able to read the text messages from my iPhone?

Eric I have been able to get test messages displayed on MyFord Touch two times in the first week of ownership, yet other times I get a message that my phone does not support messages over Bluetooth. 2013 Escape, MyFord Touch + Nav iPhone 4, iOS6

Edg Yeah both should. It is sort of crazy to advertise phone functionality when it doesn't work with the most popular smartphones on the market....

Brad B The new iPhone iOS6 software is out in Beta version for developers and it supports MAP in Bluetooth. Im using it and it reads text messaging on the iPhone 4 and 4s It will be released publicly in September/October

Ian B The iPhone does not use the Bluetooth Message Access Protocol (MAP) system that is built into SYNC that allows the system to read messages. This question is better directed towards Apple as they are the designers of the iPhone. Perhaps Ford should like to collaborate with Apple in creating a compatible accessory or software update that gives it full functionality in our vehicles. :)
