How to Delete Multiple Images from iPhone Message App in iOS 9

A quick way to delete multiple images from message app on your iPhone running iOS 9 or earlier. You can free up some space without losing conversation with this simple trick.

Messages app is one of the most used apps by iPhone users. We send many images and videos through Message app. Images and videos store enormous space on our iPhone, and we are often warned with storage warnings.

You might not know, but when you send an image through Messages app, that particular image is saved twice on your device; one inside Photos and other in the Messages app. This will lead to unnecessary consumption of your storage space.
