How to Delete Gmail Emails in Bulk on iPhone

Managing your emails on the go is essential, especially if you rely heavily on your iPhone for communication. Gmail is a popular email service provider used by millions around the world.

However, deleting multiple emails at once can be a cumbersome task. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to delete Gmail emails in bulk on your iPhone.

Step 1: Launch the Gmail App

If you haven’t already, download and install the Gmail app from the App Store. Once installed, locate the app on your home screen and tap to open it.

Step 2: Sign in to Your Account

If you haven’t signed in to your Gmail account, enter your email address and password to access your inbox. If you have multiple accounts linked to the app, ensure that you select the account containing the emails you want to delete.

Step 3: Select Multiple Emails

To select multiple emails for deletion, follow these steps:

  1. Long Press: Locate one of the emails you wish to delete and long-press (tap and hold) it until a checkmark appears next to it.
  2. Select Additional Emails: While still holding down on the first email, use another finger or thumb to tap on other emails that you want to include in the selection. As each email is tapped, a checkmark should appear next to it.
  3. Select All: If you want to delete all emails within a specific category or folder, tap on “Select All” located at the top-left corner of the screen. This will select all visible emails within that category or folder.

Step 4: Delete the Selected Emails

Once you have selected the desired emails, follow these steps to delete them:

  • Delete Button: At the bottom of the screen, you will find a trash can icon labeled “Delete.” Tap on this icon to delete all the selected emails.
  • Confirmation: A confirmation prompt will appear asking if you are sure you want to delete the selected emails. Tap on “Delete” to confirm and proceed with the deletion process.

Step 5: Verify Deletion

To ensure that the selected emails have been successfully deleted, navigate to your Trash or Bin folder and verify that they are no longer present. If they are still visible, repeat steps 3 and 4 to select and delete them again.


If you encounter any issues while deleting emails in bulk, consider the following tips:

  • Internet Connection: Ensure that your iPhone is connected to a stable internet connection. Unstable connections may cause errors or delays in deleting emails.
  • Syncing: Check if your Gmail account is properly synced with the app. Go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Fetch New Data and ensure that Fetch or Push is enabled for Gmail.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to delete Gmail emails in bulk on your iPhone. By using these simple steps, you can efficiently manage your inbox and keep it clutter-free.
