Mark iPhone messages as unread on iOS 16. (HT Tech)

Keeping a track of all the messages you receive, especially if there are a lot of them, is very difficult. The messages not only pile up, but there are occasions when you actually forget about replying to a few, perhaps even the important ones. However, if you are an Apple iPhone user, you can easily keep a track of conversations in the messages list because of this awesome trick. The only thing you must do is make sure 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 all you need to know:
