Latest iOS versions have got separate folders for screenshots and selfies. Hence, you no longer have to dig through Camera Roll to find them. But what if you don't want to keep separate folders for them for any personal reasons? How would you delete selfie and screenshots folders on your iPhone and iPad?
Maybe you don't want anyone to bump into your selfies or the screens you capture while using your device for more privacy. Or Maybe you have created special folders for them and wish to manage them in your way. There is a way to delete them. Though it's not a permanent solution, it's the only way to get rid of them.
How to Delete Selfie and Screenshots Folders on iPhone/iPad
Step #1. Open the Photos app from home screen.
Step #2. Tap on Albums at bottom-right corner and then tap the “+” sign located on top-left side of your screen, this will create a new folder.
Step #3. Name the folder whatever your wish to.
Step #4. Now go back to Selfie folder, tap on Select located on top-right of your screen.
Step #5. Select all the pictures from folder and tap on “Add To” at bottom.
Step #6. Now tap on the folder you created.
Step #7. Now again go back to Selfie folder, select all pictures and delete.
Repeat the same process with Screenshots folder.
Once you do it, both the Selfie and Screenshots folder will be emptied and thus, will disappear from Photos app. But as said earlier, this is a temporary fix; as soon as you take a selfie or screenshot, the Selfie and Screenshots folders will reappear.
I wish there was a straightforward of deleting these folders! What do you think of it?
