How to delete messages on your iPad in 2 different ways

ipad mini

  • It’s easy to delete messages on your iPad in two
    different ways. 
  • You can delete individual messages on your iPad, or you
    can delete an entire conversation with all of its
    messages.  
  • When you delete messages on your iPad, it can
    clear up storage space and protect your privacy — although the
    messages will still exist on the recipient’s
    device.

Your
iPad’s
messaging app works just like an
iPhone’s
messaging app, though your device will need to be
connected to Wi-Fi for you to send or receive messages (unless you
have an
iPad
with cellular capabilities). 

And just like with
iPhone
messages, you can easily delete
iPad
messages. 

Whether you want to erase
iPad
messages for privacy purposes or to free up space on your
device (messages containing images, videos, or other files can take
up a lot of space) the process is quick and easy.

Here’s how to do it.

When you delete messages on your iPad, you will no longer be
able to access them on your device — but they may still appear on
connected devices, and they will still exist on the recipient’s
device.
