With the new versions of iOS and iPadOS, Apple has improved the mail management system and now deleting all emails is much easier.

Step by step to delete all emails on iPhone and iPad
Deleting all email from an iOS device is surprisingly difficult, but not impossible. If you have more than one email account open on your iPhone or iPad, the first thing you need to do is open the Mail app and in the menu where the mailbox list appears click on the Edit option above.
In this section you must click on “Add mailbox” and select the Trash to appear in the list of mailboxes . In case you have more than one account open you will have to select all the trash cans.
Then go to your Inbox, click on Edit and select any email. Now comes the tricky part: keep your finger pressed on the “Move” option that appears below the screen and without releasing with another finger deactivate the mail that you marked previously.
You can then lift your finger and the Mail application on your iPhone or iPad will automatically mark all the emails in your inbox. The only thing left to do is to choose the Trash as your destination . Don’t despair though, because if you have a lot of emails this step can take a little longer.
