Do you want to mark your iPhone emails as unread? then this article is for you

The iOS Mail app for iPhone and iPad displays a blue circle next to unread emails in the mailbox. In the Mail app, you may manually flag messages as unread. Here’s how to use any iOS device running iOS 10 or later to designate one or more messages as unread.



Follow these steps to mark an email message in your iPhone or iPad Mail inbox (or another Mail folder) as unread:

  1. Open the Mail app, go to the inbox, and tap a read message to open it. Messages that have been opened or read do not have a blue indicator next to them.

  2. Select the Reply icon. In older versions of iOS, the message toolbar may appear as a Flag icon. The toolbar is at the bottom of the iPhone and at the top of the iPad Mail app.

  3. Select Mark as Unread.

Note: When you return to the inbox, the message has a blue indicator that identifies it as unread. The message remains in the mailbox until you move it or delete it. It displays the blue indicator until you open it.


You don’t have to deal with emails one at a time. You can batch them and then take action:

  1. Go to the Mailbox inbox or folder that contains the messages you want to mark as unread.

  2. Tap Edit to display an empty circular button next to each email.

  3. Tap each circular button in front of the read messages (those without the blue unread indicator) that you want to mark as unread. A white check mark appears on the circular button.

  4. Tap Mark.

  5. Select Mark as Unread to mark the selected emails as unread.

    Note: If all the emails in the inbox have been opened, you don’t need to make a selection. Scroll to the bottom of the inbox, select Mark All, then tap Mark as Unread. All the emails are assigned a blue indicator showing they are unread.
