Did you know you can delete part of a text message conversation? You can, & it’s easy. Here I show you the easiest way, in a 54 second video.

You probably know how to delete an entire iPhone text message conversation: swipe left on it, and tap Delete. But sometimes you want to delete just part of a conversation. Maybe it’s an image that you don’t want to see again, maybe it’s some harsh words you want to forget about, maybe it’s something that isn’t suitable for work. For whatever reason, being able to delete part of a text message conversation while retaining the rest of it is often exactly what you want to do.

This video shows you how to do it. The first way is easy enough, but the second is even easier! Watch the video, give it a try, and tell a friend. This is good stuff!
