How to Delete Text Messages on iPhone Automatically

Previously, I’ve talked about how to delete text messages on iPhone.

In this post, we’ll see how to delete text messages on the iPhone automatically.

Let’s get started.


  1. Open Settings.
  2. Hit Messages.
  3. Tap Keep Messages.
  4. Now, you can see these options – 30 Days (messages that are older than 30 days will get deleted automatically), 1 Year (messages that are older than one year will get deleted automatically), and Forever (messages will not get deleted automatically).
  5. Choose 30 Days or 1 Year as per your liking.
  6. Tap Delete.
