I’m not sure. But I think that feature is not yet available on the watch
It's been working since Watch OS 5 came out not sure why it's not working on some. The only exception where it doesn't work is.. SMS message and iMessage composed on Watch first will not get deleted until you typed messages on iPhone.
Really? These are SMS messages received on the iPhone and they stay on the watch no matter what I do
There was a detailed thread about it when watchOS 5 came out. Messages in iCloud has to be enabled and it will only work with iMessages (as others have stated). There was mix of reports of it still not working with users who enabled, so your mileage might vary. However, it will not remove SMS.Really?

No it doesn’t. Very irritating to have to manually delete them.That would be strange. I just assumed that it would stay in sync with the iPhone since it's getting the messages through it. Essentially just mirror what the iPhone messages show. Maybe it's going straight through the cloud to allow the LTE models to work independently of an iPhone...
I just tried it again, and it works for me. Just not with SMS messages. Maybe it is something that only works on Cellular models? I have no idea all I know is it works on my end.
If that is the case, it is working as intended. Not sure it was ever meant to delete SMS messages from the Watch. Even though it is supposed to mirror the iPhone. Likely an oversight on Apple's part.Deleting iMessages does sync on my non LTE model, just not SMS messages. I have messages in iCloud turned on. Not sure if that makes a difference.
[doublepost=1560466150][/doublepost]So I have a slightly different spin on this one - I accidentally deleted a thread (my entire iMessage history with my wife!) and I'm trying to work out how to get it back. This happened a couple of hours ago and I've switch off iCloud backup on my iPhone completely.Hi!
When I delete a message on my iPhone, it's not deleted on my watch. It is deleted on my iPad and Mac. I have messages turned on in iCloud.
Anyone else with this issue? Any known fix?

I have a cellular Apple Watch and I can see all the history on that when I scroll back beyond when I deleted the message thread on my iPhone.
My MacBook also has all the history - but I understand that it might be because the MacBook stores iMessages on the hard drive directly?
In terms of settings on the iPhone and MacBook:
-> iPhone - iMessage is not toggled on in the "Apps using iCloud" so I am assuming that means I can't just simply restore from last nights backup. No idea why this wasn't toggled, normally just had everything on iCloud backup.
-> MacBook - in the iMessage -> Preferences, the "Enable Messages in iCloud" is not switched on.
Has anyone been through this? It does look like, based on my Apple Watch, that the messages are there but I have no idea how to get them back onto my iPhone.
