Pro Tip: Automatically Delete Old Messages on iPhone

If you keep a busy schedule or you don't normally regulate iPhone storage, iPhone messages begin to accumulate and occupy too much space on your device. It's a pain to incrementally delete each message, so thankfully, there's a setting where you can automatically have your iPhone delete messages chronologically.

How to Automatically Delete Old Messages

  • Open Settings > Messages

  • Scroll down to Message History

  • Tap Keep Messages

  • There are three options: Forever, 1 year, and 30 days.

  • Once you select 1 year or 30 days, any messages older than that will be deleted.
