One of my biggest problems with the Mail app on iOS is that it's very difficult to quickly select multiple emails in a search. For example, if you want to delete all e-mails from a sender, it can take a long time to do this as usual. A bug in iOS 12 and older has speeded up the process, but is no longer available in iOS 13. However, Apple has introduced a faster way to select multiple emails.
The default operation is as follows: Tap "Edit" and select Bubble by Bubble next to the emails you want to select until they are all highlighted. Then click on "Recycle Bin" and confirm the deletion on the action sheet. It may not sound like a lot of work, but if you want to delete 450 emails, it will take you more than five minutes to do it. Personally, I think that this should not take more than 30 seconds, so it currently takes more than ten times longer than it should.
Do not you think it takes so long? Watch this video to see for yourself:
Of course, there was a way to erase entire mailboxes and folders by mass deletion. This also applies to iOS 13. In the mailbox or in the folder, tap on "Edit" and then select either
] There was a bug in iOS 10, iOS 11, and iOS 12 through which you have multiple mailboxes and folders at the same time, however, iOS 13 has eliminated it. Although Apple has resolved this "issue," several other tools have been added to help delete large groups of emails. They are not perfect, but much better than what we had before.
Option 1: Mass Deletion of Mailboxes and Folders
Earlier, when you tap "Edit" in a mailbox or folder, you would do so Click the "Mark All" button to view all e-mail content select and then delete. But this was not the case. You can only mark or mark these emails as read or unread. Now that's different.
In iOS 13, select a mailbox or folder, tap Edit, and a new Select All button appears. Tap on it, and you'll see Trash is now an option. Tap this and then tap "All in the trash" to confirm.
The problem with option 1 is that it does not work for any search you perform. So at first glance, it looks like you have to hit all these bubbles one at a time, after tapping "Edit". Fortunately this is not the case.
In iOS 13, you can tap Edit, briefly tap and hold an e-mail balloon, then slide your finger up or down the screen until everything is OK. Emails you want to delete are highlighted. Let go, then click on "Trash" and confirm with "Selected messages in the trash".
Even better, you do not even have to click the "Edit" button. Instead, take two fingers and briefly touch an email during the search. Then drag both fingers up or down to highlight all the emails you need. Then throw it in the trash.
As you can see in the following video, it is much faster than the old method. In the past, deleting 450 emails took more than five minutes, now it takes less than 50 seconds. And that was with the one-finger gesture after tapping on "edit." The two-finger gesture is even faster.
