It’s become increasingly common for mail apps to group messages from a conversation into one entry in your inbox. In theory it makes it easier to keep track of the conversation, but you might not like it, or you may find that you are missing parts of the conversation, or becoming confused about its chronology.
Fortunately most of these apps that have conversation threading also provide you with the means to disable it. This includes the default Mail app on your iPhone. Our tutorial below will show you where to find the setting that is causing this grouping by conversation to occur so that you can turn it off and return to simply viewing each message on its own.
