APPLE’s iMessage app offers three clever tricks you may have overlooked.
The US Sun has compiled some important iPhonesEvery SMS fanatic should know this.
Go to the Messages app, tap Edit, then select Show Recently Deleted.
There you can recover all deleted conversations.
But remember: deleted iPhone messages disappear permanently after 30 days.
So if you want to keep (but hide) a message indefinitely, make sure you restore it and then delete it again.
This only works on iOS 16 or later.
Your iPhone has an invisible ink feature that stays blurry until you swipe to reveal it.
It prevents snoopers from looking over your shoulderyour texts and lets you chat about movie or TV spoilers in a group chat.
Just type your message and then press and hold the send button.
When the hidden menu appears, select the Invisible Ink option, then click Submit.
Now when you or the recipient taps on the message, it will appear for a few seconds before disappearing.
You can set up a second inbox for messages from unknown contacts.
This means you can filter spam from your main inbox.
Just go to Settings > Messages and then Message Filtering > Filter Unknown Senders.
Now go back to Messages and tap Filter to choose the layout you want.
To avoid showing spam, select Known Senders.
And check the Unknown Senders stack from time to time to make sure you don’t miss anything.
