How to Mark All As Read in Reddit App on iPhone

The steps in this article are going to show you how to quickly mark all of your mail as read in the Reddit inbox on the iPhone app.

  1. Open the Reddit app.

  4. Select the Mark all inbox tabs as read option.

Most of the apps on your iPhone, such as the Mail app, will show a red circle with a number on it when there’s something that needs your attention. For example, that circle might appear on the Mail app when your Google Gmail account has new emails that you haven’t read. These notifications are called badge app icons and, while they are useful, can also be annoying.

There are other places where you may see similar notifications, including on the Inbox tab in the Reddit app. That notification indicates that you have an unread message in your inbox that requires your attention.

However, sometimes that red circle won’t go away, even when all of your messages are read, or you simply may have a lot of messages that you don’t want to read.

Our guide below is going to show you a quick way to edit this display by marking all of your inbox tabs as read.

Note that I am using dark mode in Reddit in the images above so your screens may look a little different if you are in light mode.
