    I have lots of text messages from like 2015 on my iPhone and every time I delete them all individually! The next time I turn my iPhone on and off all the messages are back! It's really annoying and I wanna to sell my iPhone 6, anyone helps?

    You need to sign out iMessages on your iPhone first, then you can delete them one by one or in bulk. If you are going to sell the phone, I'd suggest to permanently erase the phone for data security.

    SafeWiper iOS Eraser is the tool you can give it a try. It can permanently remove the whole data on iPhone by overwriting random digits to the drive.

    Actually information leak is very terrible. Before you sell your iPhone 6, there is need to wipe all the data on it. And here you can try pro iPhone Data Wipe software to do the data eraser on PC. It's easy and without restoring.
