Beginning with iOS 14, here’s a quick way to keep those people who you message most frequently up at the top of the Messages screen. As you’ll see in the screen below, I already have 6 of my contacts pinned to the top, but how did I do it?

  • Click on the Messages app
  • First, click on the 3 buttons in the top right corner

  • Click edit pins

  • Select the yellow icons at the end of the row of the people who you text regularly and their messages/icons will now be pinned at top.  That’s it!
