How to delete pictures from iPhone?

Answered by Edward Huber

To delete pictures from your iPhone, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app is typically located on your home screen and has a multicolored flower icon.

2. Once you’re in the Photos app, you’ll see different tabs at the bottom. Tap on the “Library” tab, which is the first tab on the left.

3. In the Library tab, you’ll see different options like “Photos,” “For You,” “Albums,” and more. Tap on “Photos” to view all your photos and videos.

4. Now, you’ll see all your photos and videos organized by date. Scroll through the list or use the search bar at the top to find the specific photo or video that you want to delete.

5. Once you’ve found the photo or video you want to delete, tap on it to open it in full screen mode.

6. In full screen mode, you’ll see various options at the bottom of the screen. Tap on the trash can icon, which is usually in the bottom-right corner.

7. A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm the deletion. If you’re sure you want to delete the photo or video, tap on “Delete Photo” or “Delete Video.”

8. The photo or video will now be moved to the “Recently Deleted” album, where it will be stored for 30 days before being permanently deleted.

If you want to permanently delete the photo or video immediately, you can follow these additional steps:

1. After deleting the photo or video as mentioned above, go back to the Library tab in the Photos app.

2. Scroll down and tap on the “Albums” tab, which is the second tab from the left at the bottom.

3. In the Albums tab, you’ll see different albums like “Favorites,” “People & Places,” and more. Scroll down to find the “Recently Deleted” album and tap on it.

4. In the Recently Deleted album, you’ll see all the photos and videos that you’ve recently deleted. Tap on “Select” in the top-right corner to choose multiple items for deletion or tap on the photo/video you want to permanently delete.

5. Once you’ve selected the photos or videos you want to permanently delete, tap on “Delete” at the bottom-right corner.

6. A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm the permanent deletion. Tap on “Delete [number] Items” to permanently remove the selected photos or videos from your iPhone.

It’s important to note that once you permanently delete the photos or videos from the “Recently Deleted” album, they cannot be recovered. So make sure you double-check before permanently deleting any files.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you delete pictures from your iPhone effectively.
