Many apps, especially those used for messaging or image editing, automatically create albums in the Photos app on iPhone. Even after you delete a particular app, its associated picture album remains. Over time, this may clog up your phone. So it’s a good idea to regularly delete photo albums on your iPhone and iPad running iOS 15 or 14. You can also remove any image collections you may have created yourself to organize your photos, but which you no longer need. So let’s get started.
How to delete Photo Albums from your iPhone and iPad
- Open the Photos app and tap on Albums from the bottom row.
- Tap on See All from the upper right.
- Now, tap on Edit.
- Tap the red minus button for the particular album.
- Tap on Delete Album.
This will only remove the photo album from the iPhone or iPad and not the pictures and videos that are in it.
To delete multiple albums from the iPhone, repeat steps 4 and 5. Also, you can not delete Recent and Favorites. They are in-built permanent albums.
Finally, you also can not delete any album or photo that has been synced to the iOS device via Finder on Mac or iTunes on Windows PC. To remove such photos and albums, see how to delete photos imported to iPhone from Mac or PC.
That’s all, mate!
