How to Delete Album on iPhone

If you’re an iPhone user, you might have created albums to organize your photos and videos. However, there may come a time when you no longer need a particular album and want to delete it.

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of deleting an album on your iPhone. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To begin, locate and open the Photos app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Photos app has a multicolored flower icon, making it easy to identify.

Step 2: Navigate to the Albums Tab

Once you’re inside the Photos app, tap on the Albums tab located at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to a list of all your albums.

Step 3: Choose the Album You Want to Delete

Scroll through the list of albums and find the specific album you wish to delete. Tap on it to open it.

Step 4: Access Album Settings

With the selected album open, look for the “..” (three dots) icon located at the top-right corner of your screen. Tap on it to access additional options for that album.

Step 5: Delete Album

From the menu that appears after tapping on the three dots icon, select “Delete Album”. A confirmation pop-up will appear asking if you want to delete this album.

  • If you are certain about deleting this album, tap on Delete Album.
  • If you’ve changed your mind and want to keep the album, tap on Cancel.

Deleting the album will not delete any photos or videos contained within it. The media files will remain in your All Photos album or other relevant albums they were initially added to.

Step 6: Confirm Deletion

Once you’ve tapped on Delete Album, the selected album will be immediately deleted from your iPhone. A confirmation message will briefly appear at the bottom of your screen to let you know that the album has been successfully deleted.


Deleting an album does not permanently delete any photos or videos. It only removes the organization structure of the album.

The media files themselves will still be available in your All Photos and other relevant albums.

That’s it! You have successfully deleted an album on your iPhone.

Repeat these steps for any additional albums you wish to remove, and remember that deleting an album does not delete any photos or videos from your device. Happy organizing!
