iDelete-MSG Adds A Delightful 'Delete All' Button to Messages App
Surely it would be nice if Apple didn’t make you delete every text message conversation one-by-one in the stock Messages application. It seems like a given that it would be a luxury to have at least the option to delete all of them at once. With a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed iDelete-MSG by iOS developer iMokhles, a new ‘Delete All’ button will be added to the Messages application so you can clear the application of all your conversations.
To use the ‘Delete All’ button, you simply need to tap on the ‘Edit’ button at the top left of the screen. The ‘Delete All’ button will appear at the top right after you have done so and allow you to remove all of the existing conversations from the application. There are currently no options to configure for the tweak, but the developer promises an upcoming version with the ability to enable and disable the tweak on demand.
Whether you need to quickly hide your text messages from your spouse, kids, family members; you name it – iDelete-MSG has you covered. Unlike some alternatives that simply hide messages instead of deleting messages, iDelete-MSG guarantees you that the messages will never be recovered and viewed by someone you don’t want seeing them because they are deleted and not just hidden.
Graphically, the tweak looks nice since it adds a simple button right into the user interface where you could have expected Apple to put it. It works with both text messages and iMessage alike. If you want to get rid of all your messages in a jiffy, this is certainly the way to go!

Now someone needs to make tweak to name iMessage groups. I have a couple group chats going and would like to name them to keep from mixing them up. One has same people as main chat but includes another person that only needs to be contacted when something is wrong/important.

Hey look, it's me at the top of your screenshot!
My current phone has this feature. All I have to do is swipe to the left or right (depending on settings) to delete entire texts like that. Super convenient and I can't wait to get this for my iPhone in August.
