Are you wondering how to pin someone on your iPhone? Look no further!

In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of pinning contacts on your iPhone. Whether you want to pin your favorite contacts for quick access or pin important contacts for easy communication, we’ve got you covered.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To begin, locate and open the Phone app on your iPhone. This app comes pre-installed and can usually be found on your home screen. It is represented by a green icon with a white telephone receiver.

Step 2: Navigate to Contacts

Once the Phone app is open, tap on the “Contacts” tab located at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to your list of contacts.

Step 3: Choose a Contact

Browse through your contact list and select the person you want to pin. Tap on their name to open their contact details.

Step 4: Pinning a Contact

Now that you have opened the contact’s details, look for the “Edit” button in the top-right corner of the screen and tap on it.

Note: If you cannot see an “Edit” button, make sure that you have sufficient permissions to edit contacts on your iPhone.

Pinning a Contact’s Phone Number

In this step, we will show you how to pin a specific phone number from a contact’s details.

  1. Selecting a Phone Number: Scroll down through the contact’s information until you find their phone numbers. Tap on the phone number that you want to pin.
  2. Pinning the Phone Number: On the next screen, you will see various options related to the selected phone number. Tap on “Add to Favorites” or “Add to Speed Dial” depending on your iPhone model and software version.

Pinning a Contact’s Email Address

If you prefer pinning an email address instead of a phone number, follow these steps:

  1. Selecting an Email Address: Scroll down through the contact’s information until you find their email addresses. Tap on the email address that you want to pin.
  2. Pinning the Email Address: On the next screen, tap on “Add to Favorites” or “Add to VIP” depending on your iPhone model and software version.

Step 5: Verify the Pinning

After completing either Step 4a or Step 4b, you will be taken back to the contact’s details screen. Look for a small star icon or another indication that shows the contact has been pinned. This may vary depending on your iPhone model and software version.

Step 6: Accessing Pinned Contacts

To access your pinned contacts quickly, return to the Phone app and select either the “Favorites” or “Contacts” tab at the bottom of the screen. Your pinned contacts should be prominently displayed at the top for easy access.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to pin someone on your iPhone. Now you can stay connected with your important contacts more efficiently than ever before!

Note: Keep in mind that pinning a contact does not override other settings such as Do Not Disturb mode or blocking a contact’s calls and messages.

Now go ahead and give it a try! Start pinning your most frequently contacted friends, family, or colleagues to enhance your iPhone experience.
