Got some people you would like to forget? Or got so many meaningless notification messages from your telecom service agent? Or some messages you would never want to have your parents seen? Just delete them! Fortunately, deleting text messages from the iPhone is simple and easy, and you can quickly choose and delete whichever messages you'd like. Here are a few easy steps to help you delete those messages!
There are a couple of solutions for you to delete the messages.
Delete Individual Message
1. From the home screen, tap Messages.
2. Tap the message thread as needed.
3. Tap and hold the preferred message.
4. Tap More.
5. Tap to check the preferred message(s).
6. Tap the trash can icon.
7. Tap Delete Message.
You can also delete all the messages from one contact at once if you want.
1. Launch Messages App
2. Tap on Edit
3. Select the Contact Thread

Delete all your old messages to free space on your phone.
1. Go to Settings --> Messages.
2. Scroll down to Message History. Here, you can choose to delete all messages older than 30 days, 3.or all messages older than a year old.
4. Confirm that you want to delete the old messages and attachments.
If you are very sure that you are deleting the messages you would never want to see again. Above solutions are enough. But if you are deleting messages just for making space for new apps or games or photos, videos, voice memos etc, you’d better back up the messages before the deleting. You can sync your iPhone to iTunes/iCould for backup, but rather than restoring the messages only from the backup file, iTunes/iCloud allows restoring the whole backup file to the iPhone only. So you need some kind of third party software to extract and transfer the messages from your iPhone 6 Plus and then transfer to your PC for physical backup and for future memory. That should be the best way to safeguard your messages.
iFonebox is the best choice, as it is a professional IOS data recovery software, which can recover and extract various data such as Contacts, Notes, Calendar, Messages, Messages Attachments, and photos, voice memos etc from both iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as well as from iTunes/iCloud backup file.
Follow the steps to learn how to extract messages from iPhone and transfer to your PC.
Step 1: Install iFonebox and get your iPhone connected to your PC
Step 2: Select the Messages to recover
Step 3: Recover extracted messages to PC
Note: You can do whatever modifications you would like to your messages before tapping to start transferring.
