iPhone, Tutorials

If you find yourself stuck in a never-ending group text on your iPhone, fear not! There is a way to remove yourself from the madness and regain control of your messages. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to break free from a group text on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Messages app

The first thing you need to do is open the Messages app on your iPhone. Look for the green speech bubble icon on your home screen and tap on it.

Step 2: Find the group conversation

Scroll through your list of conversations until you find the group text that you want to leave. Tap on it to open the conversation.

Step 3: Tap on the “i” icon

Once inside the group conversation, look for the small “i” icon located in the top-right corner of your screen. It stands for information and settings.

Step 4: Select “Leave this Conversation”

Tapping on the “i” icon will bring up a menu with various options related to the group text. Scroll down until you see “Leave this Conversation” and tap on it.


  • If you don’t see this option, it means that you may not be able to leave the conversation because it was initiated by someone else who has an older version of iOS or macOS.
  • If this is the case, politely ask one of the participants to remove you from the group or mute notifications instead (explained in Step 5).

Step 5: Mute notifications (optional)

If leaving the conversation is not an option, or if you simply want to temporarily silence the notifications, you can mute the group text. To do this, go back to the group conversation’s settings by tapping on the “i” icon, then toggle on the “Hide Alerts” option.


Muting notifications will prevent your iPhone from making sound or vibrating whenever a new message is received in the group text. However, you will still be able to access and read the messages at your convenience.

Step 6: Confirm your action

After selecting “Leave this Conversation,” a popup will appear on your screen asking you to confirm your action. Simply tap on “Leave this Conversation” again to finalize your decision.

Congratulations! You have successfully removed yourself from the group text on your iPhone. From now on, you won’t receive any more messages from that particular conversation.

Remember, if you ever change your mind and want to rejoin the group text, someone in the conversation will need to add you back manually.

Take control of your messages and enjoy a more peaceful messaging experience by removing yourself from unwanted group texts on your iPhone.
