iOS 16 introduces a useful new feature for dual-SIM iPhone users: the ability to sort messages per call. SIM in the Messages app. This feature is especially beneficial for those who have both personal lines and work lines set up on a single iPhone.

General apps messages
“Messages now supports the ability for customers with a dual-SIM iPhone to filter their messages based on their SIM card,” Apple’s release notes for the second beta version of iOS 16, which was made available to developers for testing on Wednesday, said. When enabled, the feature filters both iMessages and SMS / MMS messages.

It seems that sorting messages per. SIM requires activation of message filtering in the Settings app under Messages → Filter unknown senders. Users can then tap the three-dot icon at the top of the Messages app, which opens a menu with options for sorting messages based on “All Lines” or individual SIM cards, such as Personal, Business or Travel.

iPhone XS and newer models are equipped with both a physical nano-SIM card slot and a digital eSIM, allowing for dual-SIM functionality. This means you can have two service lines on one iPhone, which is useful for having personal and business connections on a single iPhone or for purchasing subscriptions for data only via eSIM while traveling abroad. From the iPhone 13 series, dual-SIM mode also works with two eSIMs.

iOS 16 is currently in beta for registered Apple developers. The update will be released to all users with an iPhone 8 or later around September.
