Apple needs to add a “Mark as Unread” feature to Text Messages
So many times I will open a message and close it, only to forget to reply later. I’m aware of the force touch message preview but there are still times that this occurs and I am sure I’m not the only one – especially considering the ‘read message earlier and forgot to reply’ messages that I have received myself from friends at times.
Simple feature, needs to exist.
This has nothing to do with iMessage read receipts. The feature would allow you to “unread” a read normal text or iMessage, similar to what you do in emails and that would put the red notification bubble back over your messages app so you would know that there is a message in there you still want to reply to and haven’t.
