Many things are easy and obvious on Apple devices. But every so often you come across something that is not. If you want to mark all your emails as read on iPhone and/or iPad and clear those indicators, let’s explore how this is done.

Whether you have a mailbox full of unread messages or just a group that you want to mark as read, you can do both in the Mail app on your Apple device.

Mark as Read on iPhone and iPad

First, open the mailbox in the Mail app on iPhone or iPad or choose All Inboxes to take care of all your mailboxes at once. You can also pick a specific folder. Tap Edit on the top right-hand corner and Select All on the top left-hand corner.

On the bottom left-hand corner, tap Mark and select the Mark as Read option. Refer to the below image:

Maybe you have just a group of emails that you want to mark. They might be newsletters, promotional emails, or confirmation messages.

First, open the mailbox or folder in the Mail app and tap Edit on the top right-hand corner.

Next, you can select each message one at a time if they are not adjacent to each other. Or, to select a range of emails that are next to each other, drag your finger through them to mark them all quickly.

Now, tap Mark on the bottom left-hand corner and select the Mark as Read option. See the below image:

You can also use the Search feature to find particular emails and mark messages as “read” the same way.

Once you clear those unread indicators in your inbox or badge on the Mail icon, you can start fresh with new messages.
