How to delete specific messages from iOS 8's conversation threads
Of course not - Apple isn't the kind of company that would get away with such a clumsy oversight. iOS 8 (and prior versions, we believe) lets you enter a message thread and erase only the messages you don't want. But for all of iOS's intuitiveness, it isn't immediately obvious how to delete a single message off a thread - especially for novice users.
We'll show you how to deal with this problem in this tutorial - it's rather simple. But bear in mind, the message will only delete on the user's side - it stays on the recipient's side.
