How come text messages can’t be organized into folders in iOS? A folder structure in the Messages app could bring a few benefits to the user:
- Create a “smart” folder for, e.g., family members
- Branch off conversations and move these new conversations to a custom folder instead of collecting hundreds of messages in just one conversation per contact
- A folder for junk messages; alternatively, a folder for messages from an unknown number
- Most importantly, a folder for recently deleted messages (WhatsApp already allows users to archive conversations)
It’s a really simple idea and its UI would look very similar to the Mail app.
