This is the fastest way to save space in your Gmail and it is not through the iPhone
Many Apple users use a Google account on a daily basis, regardless of whether they have their iCloud Drive intact. And as with all services, there may come a time when your storage is full. One way to save space is through Gmail, for which we will need to access from our Mac.
Delete all your emails from Gmail to save space
Just as we can have almost full iCloud storage space, Google’s is not infinite either. You can always delete emails from the Gmail app for iPhone, but it’s quite a time-consuming process as you have to select them one by one. Luckily, there is another way to get it.
On your Mac, open the browser and go to your Gmail account. With this open, follow these steps:
- In the inbox or mailbox you want, tap the square icon at the top.
- With this, you will select all the emails that appear loaded, up to a maximum of 50.
- However, another message will now appear in blue: “Please select XX conversations from inbox.”
- If you click there, you will now see another message confirming the selection, along with a button to cancel it.
- If you now press the trash can icon, you will send them all there.
Remember that with this you are only moving your emails to the trash. To save space in Gmail, you should remove them completely. Go to the trash and click on “Delete permanently”. Only then will you free up space in your Google account.
Keep one thing in mind: once you do this last step, you will lose all those emails forever. so maybe that’s a good idea to save or archive the emails as well as download the attachments elsewhere for later reference.
