Did you know you can mass-delete email from your iPhone or iPad? Here’s how!

This information comes from in this article:

This refers to Gmail in the instructions below. This works if you had added your Gmail account to the native Mail app on your phone or iPad. It does NOT refer to the Gmail app itself.


Do you need to purge all of your emails in one quick motion? Apple’s new operating system upgrade has now made this possible. The new iOS 9 has a new feature that will let you immediately erase all your mail in the Mail app. If you are using Gmail then you should start by changing the archive setting to delete by:

  • Going to Settings
  • Open up Mail, Contacts, and Calendars
  • Select your account
  • Go to Advanced
  • Under Move Discarded Messages and select Deleted Mailbox
  • After you do this open up the Mail app
  • Select Edit at the top
  • Click TRASH ALL at the bottom

Voila! Now your email is completely empty! You can now enjoy the benefits of having an inbox with zero emails.

Manage your Apple ID: An Apple ID is your user name for everything you do with Apple: Shop the iTunes Store, enable iCloud on all your devices, buy from the Apple Online Store, make a reservation at an Apple Retail Store, access the Apple Support website, and more.

Find your Apple ID: If you can’t remember your Apple ID, just provide some information on this page at Apple support and they’ll find it for you. Then they’ll help you reset your password.

Reset your Password:  You can change or reset the password for your Apple ID account by providing some information to Apple. Just follow this link.
