Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I use iD (and JOSM) for editing OpenStreetMap.

There are a lot of roads that should be tagged as residential road in my city. I am so bored to edit it one by one.

Map design of JOSM is difficult to identify “highway:unclassified”, “highway:residential” and “highway:service” and I do not very like to use it.

Could I use multiple edit in iD?

Regarding JOSM: You can select from many different map designs in JOSM (and even create your own design - by coding). Another option is to use the Standard OSM map as underlay below your data layer to better identify these streets. And then there is the option to use the search or filtering to only show (and select) the streets you want.

By the way: Over there is the question regarding multiple selection (which works) - but you cannot edit the selected objects tags/form fields at once (only merge, move, rotate, delete).

AFAIK, iD does not allow one to select multiple objects to edit. You have to use another editor for that. I am only familiar with JOSM and it is possible with that editor.
