How to Pin Text Messages on an iPhone

Pinning makes finding the conversation quicker. I’m using iPhone X (iOS 15.3) here.

Here’s how you can pin a conversation on the iPhone Messages app:

Open the Messages app.

Long press the conversation you would like to pin.

Now you can see many options such as Pin, Hide Alerts, Mark as Read, and Delete.

Hit the Pin option, and that’s it.

To unpin, long-press the pinned conversation at the top. Hit Unpin.

Here’s an alternate method to pin:

Slide the conversation to the right, and see the Pin icon. Hit it.

Here’s how you can pin conversations quickly:

You can see a button with three horizontal dots at the app’s top.

Hit it, and you will see Edit Pins. Select it.

Now tap the Pin icon beside the conversations you like to pin.

Tap Done at the top left, and that’s it.

To unpin, follow the steps above until you see the pinned conversations.

Hit the Minus icon on the pinned conversation you would like to unpin.

Tap the Done at the top left once you’re done unpinning.

That’s all.

Here are some other important things to note:

  • You can pin up to 9 conversations.
  • When you unpin a conversation, it’ll go back to its original position.
  • The pinned conversation will stay on top until unpinned or deleted.
