iOS 13 came with some nifty OS enhancements; Dark mode, Memoji stickers, and privacy, to name a few. Another handy feature added to the iOS 13 lineup was the option to mute specific email threads. By using the left-swipe menu on an email when viewing your inbox, users can mute the entire thread.

Receiving notifications for every single reply in a lengthy email conversation can get annoying rather quickly. To eliminate this, mute the specific email threads that seem to go on and on, so messing with your notification settings won't be necessary.

In the following Visi guide, we'll show you how to mute/unmute email threads, as well as how to choose how muted email threads behave.

For this article, we used an iPhone 7 running iOS 13.3.
