Between updates from your bank and group chats, the messaging app on your iPhone or iPad can be a mess. Use the pinned conversation feature introduced in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to access your favorite conversations at the top of the Messages app.
The new messaging app (on iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and later) lets you pin up to nine conversations to the top of the conversation view. There are a couple of ways to do this.
The easiest way to attach a message is to open the “Messages” app and swipe right on a conversation to reveal the “Attach” button. Tap the “Pin” icon to instantly pin the conversation to the top of the screen.
You can also tap and hold a conversation from the Messages app homepage to preview it and see more options. From here, select the “Pin (Contact Name)” option to attach the conversation.
If you can quickly release a conversation, press and hold the image to view options.
From here, select the “Unpin (Contact Name)” option.
You can also pin and delete multiple conversations at once. To do this, press the “Edit” button from the top toolbar.
Select the “Edit Pins” option here.
Now click on the “Pin” icon next to a conversation to pin it.
And when you have finished viewing the chat at the top of the messaging app, tap the “-” minus icon next to a conversation to unlock it.
And it’s how easy it is to capture and unload conversations in the Messages app.
