Here’s a tiny life tip that is both fun and also efficient: name your iMessage group texts!
I always liked this as a general concept, but what I didn’t realize until recently is that you can name a thread between a group of people, but you don’t have to exclusively use the labeled thread with that group. So you can have one text thread named, say, “Saugatuck plans 🌊” with three people...but also just have a regular, not-named, not-plans-related thread with those same three people, essentially keeping the conversations separate so you can easily find the one dedicated to the trip later.
Here’s how to name a text thread on an iPhone:
Tap into a text message/thread.
Tap the > under the name circles at the top of the thread. Then tap “info.”
Tap “enter a group name.” Enter a group name and/or any emojis you’d like to include.
That’s it! It’s just a small thing that makes my life a little more organized and a little more delightful.
