How to Turn Off Email Threads on the iPhone

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Mail.
  3. Under Threading, toggle off Organize by Thread.

Doing this ungroups your emails so that you can see each individual email instead of having to drill into a thread to find what you need. If you decide you’d like to keep your emails connected in a thread, you can always revisit Settings and simply turn this feature back on.
