How to Delete messages on iPhone

Deleting messages on an iPhone is a quick and easy process that can free up space on your device and help you organize your conversations. Follow these steps to delete messages on your iPhone:

  1. Open the Messages app on your iPhone.
  2. Find the conversation containing the message(s) you want to delete.
  3. Swipe left on the conversation to reveal options.
  4. Tap “Delete” to delete the entire conversation, or swipe left on a specific message to reveal more options.
  5. Tap “Delete” again to confirm that you want to delete the message or conversation.

Alternatively, you can also delete messages or conversations in bulk. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Messages app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap and hold the conversation you want to delete.
  3. Tap “Delete” to delete the conversation or tap “More…” to select multiple conversations.
  4. Select the conversations you want to delete by tapping the circles next to them.
  5. Tap “Delete” to delete the selected conversations.

Keep in mind that when you delete a message or conversation, it cannot be undone. The message or conversation will be permanently deleted from your device, and you will not be able to recover it.

If you want to keep important messages, you can also archive them instead of deleting them. Archiving messages removes them from your main inbox, but they will still be accessible in the Archived Messages folder. Here’s how to archive a message:

  1. Open the Messages app on your iPhone.
  2. Find the conversation containing the message(s) you want to archive.
  3. Swipe left on the conversation to reveal options.
  4. Tap “Archive” to archive the conversation.

To access archived messages, swipe down on the main Messages screen to reveal the search bar, then type in the name or keywords of the archived conversation.
