Do you want to delete a large number of photos on iPhone or iPad? In this post we will discuss how you can quickly remove photos from your iPhone or iPad.
Method 1. Deleting all photos in an album
If you organize photos into different categories or albums, you can select an album and mass delete all photos in the album and from your iOS device in one go.
On your iPhone or iPad, tap to run the Photos app. Tap Albums at the bottom right corner of your phone. Open the album with photos that you want to get rid of, then tap on the Select button located at the top right corner, you will then see the Select All button at the top left corner. Choose Select All to select all pictures in the Album, then touch the Trash icon at the bottom right of your phone screen. You will see a pop-up message asking you whether you like to remove the selected photos from Album or delete them from your iPhone. Confirm to delete them from your iPhone or iPad, they will go into the Recently Deleted album on your iOS device. They’ll stay in there for 30 days before they’re gone forever. You can easily restore them anytime within the 30-day period. Or you can go to select and permanently delete the photos from the Recently Deleted album to prevent them from being recovered before the 30-day period.
Method 2. Mass delete photos from Camera Roll
You can’t directly select all photos in the Camera Roll and delete all your camera pictures in one go. However you can drag to quickly select many photos in many times, then delete them at once. To do that, tap on Select button at the upper right corner of the Camera Roll screen. Touch and hold, then drag across your phone screen to select successional photos. Repeat this step as many times as you need to select more photos. Tap on to deselect and keep specific photos. Note that when you tap and drag to select multiple files, do not firmly press on your iPhone or iPad screen, this will trigger the 3D Touch in iOS. Once you have selected all the photos you want to delete, touch the trash icon at the bottom right corner and confirm the deletion in the pop-up dialog.
