How to pin content when using Shared with You in iOS 15, iPadOS 15

Shared with You works across the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 system to help you find the articles, music, TV shows, photos, and more that are shared in Messages conversations. Find out how to use it by clicking here.

For content that’s interesting to you, you can quickly pin it in Messages to easily keep track of it in Shared with You, Messages search, and the Details view of the conversation. Here’s how:

° Go to the Messages conversation. 

° Touch and hold the piece of content within the thread.

° Tap the Pin button which looks like, well, a pin.

Repeat the steps to unpin the content.

To find the pinned content:

° Go to the Messages conversation. 

° Tap the name at the top of the thread.

° Scroll down until you see the Pins section.

You can also tap the Search bar in Messages to see a Pins section.

Note that Photos can be saved to your library, but not pinned.
