Group messaging can be a great way to communicate with a group of people at the same time, whether it’s for work or personal purposes. However, sometimes you may regret sending a message or want to delete an entire group MMS conversation on your iPhone 11. Unfortunately, deleting a group MMS on an iPhone is not as straightforward as it seems. In this blog post, we will show you some effective methods to delete a group MMS on an iPhone 11.
The Challenge of Deleting A Group MMS on iPhone 11
Deleting a group MMS on an iPhone 11 can be an annoying and time-consuming task. Since an MMS is a multimedia message that contains text, photos, and videos, it is not possible to delete individual messages in a conversation directly. Additionally, you cannot delete a group MMS conversation from your Messages app as easily as you delete a one-to-one conversation. However, there are some ways to get around this problem.
Things You Should Prepare for
Before we proceed to the main methods of deleting group MMS on an iPhone 11, there are some things that you should prepare:
1. Your iPhone 11 device with an updated version of the iOS operating system.
2. A stable internet connection (Wi-Fi or cellular data).
3. Enough battery life on your iPhone to complete the process.
Method 1: By Leaving the Conversation Via Messages App

5. Tap "Leave This Conversation" and then tap "Done."
– Quick and easy to use.
– You can delete a group conversation with a tap of a button.

Method 2: By Deleting the Conversation Via Settings App
This method is another option for deleting a group MMS on an iPhone 11.

Method 3: By Using A Third-Party App
This method involves using a third-party app called iMyFone Umate Pro.
1. Download and install iMyFone Umate Pro on your computer.
2. Connect your iPhone 11 to your computer.

4. Click "Scan" to let the software scan your device.

Why Can’t I Delete A Group MMS on iPhone 11?
There are several reasons why you may be unable to delete a group MMS on your iPhone 11. Here are some of the most common reasons:
1. You may have already left the conversation, but you are still receiving messages from the group. This is because leaving a conversation only removes your name from it, but you can still receive messages from the group.
2. You may not have enough storage space on your iPhone 11, which prevents the Messages app from deleting the conversation.
3. The group MMS conversation may be too large, which makes it difficult to delete using the in-built features of the Messages app.
To fix these issues, you can try using the methods we mentioned above to delete a group MMS on your iPhone 11.
– If you don’t want to completely delete a group MMS conversation, you can hide it instead. To do this, swipe left on the conversation and tap "Hide Alerts." This will prevent notifications from the group conversation from appearing on your iPhone 11’s lock screen or in your Notification Center.
– It’s always a good idea to make sure your iPhone 11 is backed up before attempting to delete any data. You can do this using iCloud or iTunes.
