Getting Out of Group Texts on iPhone

Group texts can be a convenient way to communicate with multiple people at once. However, sometimes you may find yourself in a group text that you no longer wish to be a part of.

If you’re an iPhone user, getting out of these group texts is a simple process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to leave group texts on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

First, locate the Messages app on your iPhone’s home screen and tap on it to open it. The Messages app is represented by a green speech bubble icon.

Step 2: Select the Group Text

In the Messages app, find and select the group text that you want to leave from the list of conversations shown. Tap on it to open the conversation.

Step 3: Tap on “Details”

Once you’re in the group text conversation, look for the “Details” button located at the top right corner of your screen. Tap on it to access more options for this conversation.

Step 4: Choose “Leave This Conversation”

In the “Details” menu, scroll down until you see “Leave this Conversation” option in red text. Tap on it.


If you do not see the “Leave this Conversation” option, it means that you are unable to leave this group text as it may be an iMessage conversation or there are only three participants in total.

Step 5: Confirm Your Decision

A pop-up will appear asking for your confirmation before leaving the group text. If you’re sure about leaving, tap on “Leave This Conversation” again to confirm your decision.

Step 6: Exit the Group Text

After confirming, you will be immediately removed from the group text. You’ll no longer receive any messages from the group, and your name will no longer appear in the list of participants.

Note: Leaving a group text does not delete the conversation or remove other participants from it. They will still be able to communicate with each other in that group text.


In this tutorial, we have shown you how to get out of group texts on your iPhone. Following these steps, you can easily leave any unwanted group conversations and regain control over your messaging experience. Remember that leaving a group text is irreversible, so make sure you’re certain about your decision before confirming.

Additional Tip:

If you frequently find yourself in unwanted group texts, you can also mute them instead of leaving. Muting a conversation will prevent notifications from appearing for that specific group text, allowing you to avoid distractions while still remaining a part of the conversation if needed.

  • To mute a conversation, follow Steps 1 and 2 above to access the conversation details.
  • In the “Details” menu, toggle on the “Hide Alerts” switch to enable it.

We hope this article has been helpful in assisting you with leaving group texts on your iPhone. Happy messaging!
