With iOS 14, Apple is introducing some interesting new features for its messaging app. The largest of these will benefit your group messages, with support for inline replies and better notification options. Apple has also announced that you can pin your top chats, and new Memoji options are being added.
Apple says its new answer options should make it easier to follow conversations in group chats. Instead of having every message reply to the entire group chat, you can use the inline reply function to reply to certain messages and start a conversation thread that can be displayed separately from the main group chat.
Inline messages can appear as part of the main group chat or as part of their own conversation threads.
