However, it’s easy to clear out voicemail from the iPhone, so whether you just want to simplify the iPhone a bit, lose that lengthy weirdo message on your phone, or restore some additional storage capacity, you’ll find it just takes a moment or two to complete. What’s more important, you may want to permanently clear the voicemail on your iPhone to prevent personal info leaks. In this guide, we will offer you two ways to delete iPhone voicemail.

Part 1. How to Delete Voicemail on iPhone Directly

Step 1. Open the Phone app on the iPhone and tap on the “Voicemail” tab.
