Group chats can be a great way to stay connected and communicate with multiple people at once. However, there may come a time when you want to leave a group chat on your iPhone.

Whether it’s because the chat is no longer relevant to you or you simply want to reduce the clutter in your messaging app, leaving a group chat is a simple process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to leave a group chat on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Messages app on your home screen. The Messages app is represented by a green speech bubble icon with a white outline.

Step 2: Select the Group Chat

Once you have opened the Messages app, scroll through your conversations and find the group chat that you want to leave. Tap on the conversation to open it.

Step 3: Access Group Chat Details

Next, tap on the name of the group chat at the top of your screen. This will open up the Group Info page where you can find more details about the chat.

Step 4: Leave the Group Chat

On the Group Info page, scroll down until you see “Leave this Conversation” in red text at the bottom. Tap on this option.


  • If “Leave this Conversation” is not visible or grayed out, it means that you cannot leave this particular group chat. Only groups where there are three or more participants allow for leaving.
  • If you are using an older version of iOS, instead of “Leave this Conversation,” you might see “Leave Chat” or “Delete and Exit”. The functionality remains the same, so tap on that option.

Step 5: Confirm Leaving the Group Chat

After tapping on “Leave this Conversation,” a pop-up will appear to confirm your action. The pop-up will warn you that you will no longer receive messages from this group if you leave. Tap on “Leave This Conversation” to confirm and exit the group chat.

Step 6: Return to Messages

Once you have left the group chat, you will be redirected back to your Messages app. The group chat will no longer appear in your list of conversations.

Leaving a group chat on your iPhone is as easy as following these six simple steps. Whether it’s to declutter your messaging app or disengage from an irrelevant conversation, leaving a group chat can help streamline your communication.

Remember, once you leave a group chat, you will no longer receive any messages from that conversation. So make sure you truly want to leave before confirming your action!
