🗓️ October 13, 2023 By ✍️ Jaysukh patel

One of the tiny but annoying functions I have noticed is that the thread deletes every time a confirmation message pops up each time. Apple added this confirmation window to prevent an accidently deleted messages thread. But on the other side, millions of guys feel the request is an obnoxious & unnecessary function. And there isn’t an option to shut off the confirmation message (iMessage confirm before delete) and ask if you Would like to delete this conversation? All the time.

Even though I found methods to bypass a message ask before deleting on your iPhone or iPad messages App. Let’s take a close look at what methods are indeed helpful.

    You are so interesting! I don’t think I’ve truly read through a single
    thing like this before. So good to find another person with some genuine thoughts
    on this issue. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This
    site is something that is needed on the web,
    someone with some originality!

  2. Thank you. That was helpful I’ve sent a change request to Apple asking that this “enhancement” be removed or at least made optional.

  3. The engineers at Apple are somewhere between genius simplicity and overbearing know-it-alls. In this case, they are on the overbearing end. If I want to delete a message, I generally do them one at a time. And I DO NOT want to have to re-confirm my decision the next 50,000 times I delete a text message.
