iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of cluttered photo albums on your iPhone? Deleting unwanted albums can help you organize your photos and free up storage space. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of deleting albums on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To begin, locate and tap on the Photos app icon on your iPhone’s home screen. The Photos app is represented by a multicolored flower-like icon.

Step 2: Navigate to Albums

Once you have opened the Photos app, tap on the Albums tab located at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to a page where all your photo albums are listed.


If you are using an older version of iOS, you might find the Albums tab at the bottom center of the screen.

Step 3: Select an Album to Delete

In this step, scroll through the list of albums and find the specific album that you want to delete. Once you have located it, tap on it to open it.

Step 4: Tap on ‘Edit’

After opening the album, look for the Edit button located in the top-right corner of your screen. Tap on it to enter editing mode.


If your album does not have an Edit button, it means that it is a default system album that cannot be deleted. You can only delete user-created albums.

Step 5: Delete Individual Photos (Optional)

If there are specific photos within the album that you want to remove before deleting the entire album, you can do so in this step. Simply tap on the photos you want to delete, and a blue checkmark will appear on each selected photo. Once you have selected all the desired photos, tap on the Delete button located at the bottom-right corner of your screen.


Deleting individual photos will only remove them from the album, not permanently delete them from your iPhone. The photos will still be available in your All Photos album.

Step 6: Delete the Album

To delete the entire album, tap on the Delete Album option located at the bottom of your screen. A confirmation pop-up will appear asking for final confirmation.

Step 7: Confirm Deletion

In this final step, review the confirmation message that appears on your screen. If you are sure about deleting the album and all its contents, tap on Delete Album. Otherwise, tap on Cancel to keep the album as it is.


Once an album is deleted, it cannot be recovered. Make sure to back up any important photos or albums before proceeding with deletion.

Congratulations! You have successfully deleted an album from your iPhone. Repeat these steps for any other albums you wish to remove and enjoy a clutter-free photo library!
