How to Mute Conversations in Messages on iPhone and iPad?

Do you ever feel annoyed by constant texts from a group that you’re not really interested in, or maybe from someone who’s bothering you about something? If so, there’s a built-in feature in iMessage that allows you to stop receiving notifications from that group or person. The Messages app on your iPhone handles regular SMS and iMessage texts.

If you’re receiving unwanted messages from a person, you can block them. However, this would also mean that you won’t receive their calls. If you don’t want to block them completely, but you’re tired of receiving their messages, you can mute them. This way, you won’t be notified of any new messages from them, but you’ll still receive important ones.
