Question: I can no longer delete text messages. Any suggestions?

I can’t delete a text message after new OIS upgrade. When I tap and hold on a message, I don’t get the option “more”—only “copy”

iPhone 8 Plus, iOS 11.2.6

Hey Knw1823,

If I understand correctly, the Messages app does not have the more option so you can delete sent messages. A couple things you may want to try is restarting the iPhone and try again. Also, close the Messages app and relaunch it to see if it responds as expected.

Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
