How are messages sorted on iPhone?
Recently I found out that you could type ‘.’ when selecting a recipient on iMessage to see the numbers recently texted. However, I found the order of addresses to be extremely strange and was interested in how it works. For example, the first three numbers that appear are my friends which are currently in a group chat with me. However, their numbers appear separately, despite me never having texted them individually. Underneath them is a contact called ‘Group’ that has all their numbers together.
What’s precisely going on here? Is my iPhone just telling me when was the last time I received a text, regardless if it was a pm or in a group chat? I’m simply confused to how this is sorted. Thanks in advance.
