 There is no select all option in any of the versions of Gmail (Desktop version or older version) in IOS Any other way to delete all On my mobile devices.  When I do it from my desktop my browser crashes sometimes it would be easier from my phone or iPad. 

On a sidenote: It’s ridiculous that this button is not included in the standard version of your apps or mobile, it’s something incredibly useful. I think a lot of us receive crazy amount of spam and junk that we have to constantly delete and you are not making it easier.  PLEASE WORK IN THIS. It’s a big problem.

As of now, there is no "select all" option in either ios or android Gmail mobile application. The desktop version of Gmail consist of "select all" option at the top small square button. 

Spam section consists of "Empty folder now" option to delete all spam emails in one go. 

We hope that maybe in the upcoming version of Gmail we can see the select all options to make our workflow easy.

I have the same problem.  My very Old AOL on Safari (IOS device) functions better than gmail.  Even in Trash, I have to individually click on each mailing and delete it AGAIN.
Not worth the trouble.  AOL works better on IOS

Agreed. Inbox cleaning without a select all option in the search results means it's useless for that purpose.

Agree as well! So annoying to click on or swipe each individual email. We all received a lot of unwanted emails that aren’t labeled as Spam.

Please use the in-product “Send feedback” link to submit your request for select-all directly to Google.  You will not receive a response from Google.

This is a critical function that Google shouldn't delay till the next scheduled update. The amount of time squandered due to a simple selection tool missing from an ubiquitous pre-installed email app, is absurd!

Agreed. Please create a select all feature for cleaning up unread emails for people paying for the G suite
