How to Delete Large Attachments on iPhone: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you running out of memory on your iPhone due to large attachments sent via iMessage? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this guide, we’ll show you how to delete these large attachments, freeing up memory and ensuring your iPhone runs smoothly.

First, go to your settings and select “General” and then “iPhone Storage”. Here you will find the “Messages” option, which you should tap on to see the data and documents taking up space. You can also see the photos, videos, gifs and stickers that are filling up your iPhone’s memory.

To delete photos, tap on the “Photos” section and click on “Edit” at the top right. Select all the photos you want to delete and click on the trash can icon. You can do the same for videos, voice memos, stickers and other attachments.

If you want to automate the process, go back and select “Messages”. Scroll down and select “Keep Message History”. By changing this setting from “Forever” to “30 days” or “1 year”, all attachments older than the selected period will be automatically deleted. We recommend setting it to 1 year, as this will keep all messages and attachments relevant to the last year.

By following these simple steps, you can easily delete large attachments on your iPhone and free up memory. This will not only help your phone run faster and smoother, but it will also ensure that you have space for important files and documents.
