The hack was recently revealed by TikTok gadget guru @mannytechlife.

Tech pro Manny says iPhone owners “need to know” about this clever hack, and he’s not wrong.

If you’re a regular iPhone user, you’ll notice that the Messages app can easily get stuck.

They are often filled with spam texts and verification code messages.

These texts can make it difficult to find important conversations.

Thankfully, there is Apple’s feature that allows you to filter out texts from unknown senders.

It doesn’t block them (so you can still receive them), but it makes your iPhone inbox much cleaner.

First, make sure your iPhone is updated to the latest iOS software.

[設定]>[一般]>[ソフトウェア アップデート]to check.

then again[設定]and open[メッセージ]Choose.

scroll down to[メッセージ フィルタリング]under the[不明な送信者をフィルター]to turn on.

That’s 3 taps:[設定]>[メッセージ]>[不明な送信者のフィルター]to turn on.

So how do we enable the filter?

Go to your Messages app and in the top left corner[フィルター]Choose.

Then you can see that the message is split.

There are filters for all messages, known senders, and unknown senders.

So if you want the most organized inbox, it’s probably best to leave your messages filtered by known senders.

that’s not all

There are tons of great iMessage hacks you should know about.

For example, you can use emojis to reply to individual messages.

Just go to the selector and drag the emoji to the text you want to reply to.

This works with Apple’s custom Memoji that looks like you and adds special characters to your replies.

You can also unlock a hidden message menu that lets you send text effects.

Just type your message and press and hold the send button.

This will bring up a special menu where you can animate your message.

But that’s not all.

This incognito menu can also be used to launch a fullscreen effect for the recipient.

go in there, at the top[画面]Select to flood your opponent’s screen with the selected emoji.

And here’s another trick for iMessage fans.

Just open a chat and type “Pew Pew”.

Both you and the recipient will see the screen filled with lasers.

I have some other code you can try.

Send a “congratulations” message and confetti will rain down.

And the same is true if you write “Congratulations” in another language.

If you enter “Happy Birthday”, a balloon will float on the screen.

And then there’s “Happy Chinese New Year,” which unleashes virtual fireworks in iMessage.

Note: You won’t see these effects unless the recipient also has an iPhone.

Also, these effects are limited to iMessage only, so they won’t work on WhatsApp, Signal, or Facebook Messenger.
