iOS 14 Leaked Feature: @ Mentions in Group Messages
iOS 14 is expected in a matter of weeks at WWDC. Typically, we know very little concrete about an upcoming iOS version prior to the announcement, but this year there was a leak of an early build of iOS 14.
That leak got into the hands of the developer community which has found a number of new features hidden in the code.

In a busy group chat, this feature will make it possible to mute the conversation but receive push notifications when direct mentions are included.
