    The simple "Delete" is not enough: To deal with some useless messages on the iPhone, we usually use the the built-in "Delete" function. However, when you run a search on your iPhone, you'll see the deleted messages still showing up.

    "Erase All Content and Settings" doesn't really delete data: If you know how it works, you'll know that it's not really. Apple only provide a hardware encryption to get your data locked instead of deleting it. That's to say, with a powerful data recovery tool, the data still can be retrieved, and your personal data will be at risk of leaking.

    Then, how can we permanently delete messages on the iPhone? We need a third-party professional data eraser, here recommend the SafeEraser or SafeEraser for Mac. With it all data (including contacts, messages, photos, videos, apps, account info, passwords and other personal data stored on iPhone) can be really deleted forever. No matter which data recovery software you use, you can find nothing on it.

    SafeEraser works great for iPhone X / 8 Plus / 8 / 7 Plus / 6S Plus / 6S / SE. You can download it below:


    Step by step to delete iPhone text messages permanently
    Step 1. Do backup your iPhone
    Before you get started, please backup your iPhone data first. All data on your iPhone will be totally wiped and can't be retrieved. To get the messages deleted permanently, you can't restore your iPhone from iTunes or iCloud, or the deleted data will also be restored. The best way is to use a third-party tool, such as TunesGo for iOS, to backup the data from your iPhone to the computer. You can put it back to your iPhone after the deleting.
