    At some point since the release of iOS 7, the Mail app has periodically stopped clearing its badge when all emails have been read. It can be a
    frustrating thing to deal with at times but luckily there is a way to solve this problem. A very simple way to fix this problem was also baked in during
    the few past releases of iOS.

    If you run into this situation you can solve it very simply by following these steps:

    Open the mail app

    Tap the Edit button and select "Mark as Unread"
    [GUIDE] How To Clear the Unread Badge from the Mail App When Messages Have Been Read-2014-02-10-22.29.27.png

    Now tap the Edit button and select "Mark as Read"
    [GUIDE] How To Clear the Unread Badge from the Mail App When Messages Have Been Read-2014-02-10-22.29.39.png

    Once you have followed these steps, the badge on the Mail app will disappear from your home screen!
