Apple iPhone user, you can easily keep track of the conversations in the message list. Here is how.
Opened a message by mistake and forgot to reply to it later? If you are an Apple iPhone user, you can easily keep track of the conversations in the message list. All you need is that the Apple iPhone model you are using supports iOS 16. In the Messages app, you can mark messages as unread or pin and unpin conversations to prioritize messages in the Messages list. Here is everything you need to know:
How to mark messages as unread
You can mark conversations as unread so you can come back to them later when you have time to reply. To do the same, you need to go to the Messages list and then swipe right on a conversation to mark it as unread. Or drag to the right and tap the Mark Unread button.
You can also mark multiple messages as unread at once by following a few simple steps. All you need to do is tap the More options button, then click Select messages, select the conversations you want to mark as unread, and then tap Unread in the bottom left corner.
How to see a list of your unread messages
To see a list of your unread messages, you must first set up message filtering. Here are the steps you can follow:
Go to Settings and tap Messages.
Scroll down to Message Filtering, then turn on Filter Unknown Senders.
In the Messages conversation list, tap Filters, then tap Unread messages.
How to pin a conversation on iPhone
You can pin specific conversations to the top of the Messages list so that the people you communicate with the most are always at the top of the list. You can follow any of the following steps for the same:
1. Swipe right on a conversation, then tap the Pin button.
2. Touch and hold a conversation, then drag it to the top of the list.
However, if you’ve pinned a conversation by mistake and want to unpin it, you can do so by touching and holding a conversation, then drag the message to the bottom of the list. Alternatively, you can also long press on a conversation and then tap on the Unpin button.
