    Hi, i am not able to select in IOS 13 more photos or attachments in Imessage. It is possible to delete it one by one. Only one possibility is in settings - large attachments, but this is only for big ones.

    Do you have any idea how to do it?

    Thanks

    Hello there, @Katka Kalinova. Welcome to iMore.

    Are you wanting to delete multiple images from a single iMessage? If so here's what I did and it worked.

    I went to a message with a friend yesterday that had some camera lens photos. Two photos to be exact.

    When I touch and hold on the first image, I get this:

    Mass delete in imessage attachments-img_0299.png

    I have the option to like/dislike/etc the image at the top, but them I also have a menu at the bottom. If I select More, I get this:

    Mass delete in imessage attachments-img_0300.png

    I now have the option to select both photos from the message, then click the trash can icon, confirm you want to delete both photos from the message, and POOF the images are gone but the message is still there.

    Hope this helps. If it did, please like this reply.

    Hello and welcome to iMore. This seems to be an issue. Please consider providing feedback to Apple:

    Mass delete was removed a while ago. I think it was with the first beta of iOS 13.
    It’s a nuisance for sure, but meh, I just delete the entire thread from my messages list to clear all photos quickly.
    If it was worth saving, I already have it saved. And the stuff that’s been written in messages aren’t important to save for an extended time anyway, in my use case.

    Well, that's certainly one way to do it!
