You may be also confused about this iOS 10 Mail problem. Because you cannot 1-click delete all emails in Sent, Drafts and Inbox just like you did in iOS 9 (iOS 9 offers you an option "Trash All" to remove all emails on "Mail" app, but there is no related option in iOS 10). How can we easily remove all emails to free up your iPhone iPad storage after iOS 10 update? Below we offers you two methods.

Method 1. How to Remove Emails in iOS 10 One By One

Now it will be a little tedious and annoying to remove all emails in Inbox, Sent and Draft on Mail app in iOS 10. Although the "Trash" and "Junk" folders have the "Delete All" link to help your remove all emails in 1 click, "Inbox", "Drafts" and "Sent" folder doesn’t provide your "Delete All", which means you have to select the emails one by one and then start your deleting.

Step 1. Run Emails on your device.

Step 2. Go to Inbox or Sent and tap "Edit". Select emails and tap "Trash", or "Move" > "Trash".

Method 2. How to Remove All Emails in iOS 10 on iPhone iPad

There is a hidden method in iOS to easily remove all emails in Inbox or Draft. And it needs only a few clicks, works on any iPhone iPad in iOS 10 and iOS 10.1 (including iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.)

Step 1. Go to Inbox or other mailboxs that have no "Delete All", and click Edit on the top corner.

Step 2. After selecting one email, press and hold the "Move" on the bottom and then uncheck the email you selected. (Make sure not release "Move" until you uncheck all the items you checked before.)

Step 3. It will bring you to a page that allows you to move all emails to another folder, such as Junk and Trash. In this way, you can move all emails to trash.

Step 4. After moving all emails to trash, just click Edit > "Delete All" in the trash to get rid of all emails in Inbox or other boxes that have no "Trash All".

Step 4. Go to Trash folder and clean all emails.

Maybe the "Trash All" will be back some days later in new iOS 10.X. If you have some other problems after updating to iOS 10, you can click here to check whether there is a solution. And welcome any comments on iOS 10 Mail app.
