Method 1: Deleting Individual Photos

If you only want to delete specific photos from your iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Photos app: Locate and tap on the Photos icon on your home screen.
  2. Navigate to the desired album: Tap on the Albums tab at the bottom of the screen and select the album where the photo is located.
  3. Select the photo(s) to delete: Browse through the album and tap on each photo you wish to delete. A blue checkmark will appear on selected photos.
  4. Delete the selected photo(s): Tap on the trash can icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen. A confirmation message will pop up.
  5. Confirm deletion: To proceed with deleting, tap “Delete Photo(s)” in the confirmation message.

Method 2: Deleting All Photos

If you want to delete all photos from your iPhone at once, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open Settings: Locate and tap on the Settings app icon on your home screen.
  2. Scroll down and find “General”: Scroll through the settings options and tap on “General. “
  3. Select “iPhone Storage”: Within the General settings, tap on “iPhone Storage. “
  4. Tap on “Photos”: You will find a list of apps using storage.

    Tap on “Photos” from the list.

  5. Select “Review Personal Videos & Photos”: It will open a new screen with an overview of your photo library.

  7. Delete selected photos: After selecting all photos, tap on the trash can icon. A confirmation message will appear.
  8. Confirm deletion: To proceed with deleting, tap on “Delete [X] Photos” in the confirmation message. Replace [X] with the actual number of photos you have selected.

Method 3: Using Third-Party Apps

If you prefer using third-party apps for managing your photos, there are several options available on the App Store. These apps often provide additional features and functionality beyond what is offered by the built-in Photos app. Simply search for and install a reputable photo management app that suits your needs from the App Store.


Please remember that once you delete photos from your iPhone, they cannot be recovered unless you have a backup copy. Ensure that you have backed up any important images before proceeding with deletion.

Congratulations! You now know how to delete individual photos or clear your entire photo library from your iPhone. Enjoy the extra storage space and keep capturing those precious moments!
