Step by Step Tutorial: Clearing Call History on iPhone 15

Before we start, know that clearing your call history will remove all records of incoming, outgoing, and missed calls from your phone. This can’t be undone, so make sure you’re ready to say goodbye to that list!

Step 1: Open the Phone app

Open the Phone app on your iPhone 15. This is where all your call activities are logged.

Once you’re in the Phone app, you’ll see different tabs at the bottom. Your recent calls are usually the first thing you see when you open the app, but if not, just tap on “Recents” to view your call history.

Step 2: Edit Call History

Tap on the “Edit” button in the upper right corner of the screen.

After tapping “Edit,” you’ll notice that delete buttons appear next to each call entry, and a “Clear” button will appear in the upper left corner. This is your gateway to cleaning up your call log.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Clear’

After you’ve hit “Edit,” tap on the “Clear” button that has appeared in the upper left corner.

A prompt will appear asking if you’re sure you want to clear all recent calls. This is your point of no return – if you’re sure you want to proceed, go ahead and confirm your choice.

Step 4: Confirm Deletion

Confirm the action by tapping “Clear All Recents” in the pop-up menu.

Once you confirm, your entire call log will be wiped clean. It’ll be like you’ve never made or received a phone call on your device!

After you’ve cleared your call history, you’ll find that the “Recents” tab is empty. No calls will be listed until you start making or receiving new calls, which will then begin to build up a new call history.

Tips for Clearing Call History on iPhone 15

  • Before clearing your call history, make sure there’s no information you need to keep. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good!
  • If you’re clearing your call history for privacy reasons, consider doing it regularly to maintain a clean call log.
  • Remember, clearing your call history won’t delete any contacts, just the record of calls with them.
  • If you only need to delete a specific call, you can do that too by swiping left on the call entry and tapping “Delete” instead of clearing your entire history.
  • Clearing your call history doesn’t free up a significant amount of storage space, so it’s more about organization and privacy than saving space.
