    I turned on the option to delete my text/iMessages after 30 days. When I activated the feature it asked if I wanted to remove everything older than that already on the device. I said yes and it did remove as expected.

    Thing is, that appears to be the last time it did this. I have messages that are now @35 days old that are still on my device. Anyone else select this option that is seeing this work?

    I don't keep my messages long term so looking forward to this working correctly. Its been difficult waiting this many days to test only to see it do nothing so far.

    state of confusion.
    I haven't enabled this, but what I would like (and correct me if I'm wrong here) is to keep text, just auto delete pictures/audio/video after 30 days. Keep the text, but get rid of the bloat.
