How do I delete texts on my watch even though there deleted on my phone there still on the watch.
Open the messages app on the watch, find the conversation you would like to delete and slide the name to the left. There you will see the delete option. There is no way to delete single messages that I am aware of. Only the whole conversation.
Got it thx.
Wait so you have to manually delete conversations from the Watch? It doesn't sync with the phone?
Odd, if I delete from the watch it deletes from the phone (at least in emails)
Same goes in reference to the iPad and iPhone... The messages will still be on the other device. I kind of like that.
It's been this way with iMessage on iPhone, iPad, and Mac for a while now. Delete a thread on one device...and it doesn't delete on the others. It's maddening they haven't added an option to sync-delete message threads across multiple devices. Like email. Or literally anything else.
I hate this too. I want the messages I delete from phone to delete the ones on watch and vice versa.
Given the fact that Apples done a good job, in my opinion, for the initial effort I'd bet there's good things coming in an update soon.
Stop cheating .... I kid I kid
The worst case I talk ***** and don't want certain people reading it.
I did notice this. Deleted some from my bank and they were still on the watch...
That is correct, it works the same way as any iMessage/Messages device. E.g. You receive a text on your iPhone, iPad, iMac & Apple Watch. You then delete it from the iPhone but it is still there on all of the other devices.
This is an old thread, but have any updates allowed an option to delete all texts on watch?
Not yet - still necessary to delete text messages individually.
Maybe one day Apple will fix this simple little thing.
They don't sync deletion on any iCloud device. I have my messages synced between my iPad Mini, iPhone and Mac. When I delete them in one device, they remain on the other 2.
Oops, I replied before reading all the thread, apologies for reinstating what has been said before.
+1. I'd prefer to have access to older messages and threads if necessary. It's more aggravating to delete something and wind up having to refer to it again later.
