Part 2: How to delete all photos from iPhone/iPad directly on the Device

For a single photo deletion, simply launch the Photo app and select one image, press deletion button, then it's gone. While for a mass operation, depending on your specific demand, you can continue in 2 ways according to Apple.

1. Delete all photos permanently

Open the Photos app and tap Select.
Tap each photo or video that you want to delete.
Tap on the deletion button and press Delete Photos.

Since your deleted items will be put in the Recently Deleted album for 30 days, go on to the next move for a thorough cleanup.

  • Open the Photos app and go to the Albums tab.
  • Open the Recently Deleted album and tap Select.
  • Tap each photo or video that you want to permanently delete.
  • Tap Delete.

PS: You have a second chance to recover permanently delete photos from iPhone, so keep this guide in your bookmark or somewhere for future needs.

2. Erase all photos along with other data files

This is somewhat risky and not so recommended. Only when you decided to abandon your device or sent it to a friend, it's a good way to erase all photos for the purpose of privacy protection.

  • Tap Settings > General > Reset. Then tap Erase All Content and Settings
  • If asked, enter your passcode or Apple ID password.
  • Wait for your device to erase.
