How to Delete Multiple eMails in iOS
Deleting a group of emails in iOS is fairly straight forward, this will be the same on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch:
- Open Mail app to the inbox in question and tap on “Edit” in the upper right corner
- Select Mail messages you want to delete so that a red checkbox appears next to them
- Now tap the “Move” button (the number of messages selected will appear alongside it)
- At the “Mailboxes” screen, tap on “Trash” to move all the selected emails to Trash and delete them
As you might have guessed, you can use this same technique to move mail messages from one mail folder to another.
Reasonably intuitive and a bit similar to marking multiple emails as “Read” in iOS, though there is some room for improvement in future versions of Mail app, hopefully adding a Mark All and Delete All option.
