iOS 16: Apple to bring more filters to Messages app in India

In 2020, Apple introduced some useful SMS filters – transactions and promotions – to separate the important texts from the annoying ads.

Now the company is all set to introduce about 12 more subcategories to further improve the user experience of the Messages app on iPhones.

In the recently released developer beta of iOS 16, Apple revealed that it has further split the aforementioned two filters into subfolders for the Indian market. Apple has noticed that customers are inundated with marketing text messages in myriad forms and to clean up the Messages app inboxes it brings more categories.

Among the Promotions, users will find offers, coupons and others.

And in the transactions: there are finances, reminders, orders, health, public services, weather, carrier, rewards and others.

In this way, users can search the messages for coupons or OTP easily and faster than before to complete the transaction.

For example, bank transactions appear in Finance, food or commercial delivery groceries are organized under Orders, while important events and to-dos appear in the Reminders folder.
