How to Delete Individual Text Messages on the iPhone If you want to delete a few individual messages from a thread while leaving your overall conversation untouched, follow these steps: Tap Messages to open it Tap the conversation that has the messages you want to delete in it With the conversation open, tap and hold on the message you want to delete until the menu pops up. Then tap More in the menu A circle appears next to each individual message Tap the circle next to a message to mark that message for deletion. A checkbox appears in that box, indicating that it will be deleted Check all the messages you want to delete Tap the trash can icon in the bottom left corner of the screen Tap the Delete Message button in the pop-up menu (earlier versions of the iOS may have slightly different options in the menus, but they're similar enough that it shouldn't be confusing. If you tapped Edit or More by mistake and don’t want to delete any texts, don’t tap any of the circles. Just tap Cancel to exit without deleting anything.

If you want to delete a whole conversation, just swipe from right to left on the conversation, and a delete option appears.
