Hi,


I went to General > Messages on my iPhone and was not able to see an option to disable this feature.  I will say that I've accidentally touched that numerous times to automatically be scrolled to the top of my message with the person.  If that happens I back out of the message then go back into it to start at the most recent message again.

Any idea if there is a Scroll down option by tapping somewhere else to to back to bottom of messages vs. exiting out and going back in?

Yes, there is.  If you scroll up or down slightly you'll see the scroll bar on the right.  Double tap that and then hold/press the scroll bar and you should have the ability to fast scroll up and down on the conversation.

I have an iPhone 11.  What iPhone are you using?  It might be slightly different between phone versions.

OK so it [i]should[/i] be similar.  Is there anything else on your mind about this situation?
