How do you delete previous text messages

1 Answer from the Community

  • To delete your old texts:

    Open Messages and go to the main screen with the list of conversations you gave. Swipe left on a conversation and then press delete. If you want to delete multiple at once, press "Edit" at the top-left hand corner and select the conversations you want to delete, and then tap "Delete" at the bottom-right hand corner.

    To automatically delete texts after 30 days or after a year, go to Settings > Messages > Keep Messages, and then select a time. I personally have mine set to 30 days so I don't have to deal with messages adding up.
