Group texts can be a convenient way to communicate with multiple people at once on your iPhone. However, there may come a time when you find yourself in a group text that you no longer wish to be a part of.

Thankfully, getting out of a group text on an iPhone is a simple process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to leave a group text on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To get started, locate and open the Messages app on your iPhone. This app is represented by a green icon with a white speech bubble.

Step 2: Select the Group Text

Next, locate the group text conversation that you want to exit from. Tap on it to open the conversation.

Step 3: Tap on “Details”

Once inside the group text conversation, tap on the “Details” button located in the top-right corner of your screen. The “Details” button is represented by an “i” inside a circle.


If you are using an older version of iOS, you may need to tap on “i” instead of “Details”.

Step 4: Scroll Down and Tap “Leave this Conversation”

In the Details screen, scroll down until you see the options for the group members. At the bottom of these options, tap on “Leave this Conversation”.

  • Note:
    • If “Leave this Conversation” is grayed out and cannot be tapped, it means that you are in an iMessage group with non-iMessage users (such as Android users). In this case, you will not be able to leave the conversation.
    • If you do not see the “Leave this Conversation” option at all, it means that you are in a traditional SMS or MMS group text, which does not support leaving the conversation.

Step 5: Confirm Your Decision

A pop-up will appear on your screen asking you to confirm if you want to leave the group text. Tap on “Leave” to confirm your decision and exit the conversation.


Leaving the group text does not delete any messages or remove other participants from the conversation. It simply removes you from the ongoing group chat.

And there you have it! You have successfully left a group text on your iPhone.

You will no longer receive notifications or messages from that specific group chat. Remember, this process only applies to group texts and not individual conversations with other iPhone users.

If you change your mind and want to rejoin the group text later, someone from within the conversation will need to manually add you back.

Now that you know how to get out of a group text on your iPhone, you can easily manage your messaging preferences and focus on the conversations that matter most to you.
