A lot of us depend on iMessage to communicate with friends, family, and colleagues. That means not every message we receive is attached to someone in our contacts. If you keep finding yourself buried in tons of iMessage threads, some less important than others, here's how to filter out messages from those you don't have saved.


How to filter out iMessages from unknown contacts

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 8.3 or higher.
  2. Tap on Messages.
  3. Turn On the option for Filter Unknown Senders.
  4. In the Messages app you'll now see a tab at the top to view unknown senders.
