How to Delete an Album on iPhone 11/12/13

0 Views 0 min read

Clearing out unwanted files or apps regularly can help us free up more storage space, make our devices more organized, and improve the performance of our system. However, deleting files, especially photos and albums is tedious. Depending on your photo album type, you can use two ways to delete photo albums on your iPhone. 

1. If you want to delete native albums like Panoramas, Selfies, Live Photos, and Screenshots, you can directly delete them on your iPhone or iPad. 
2. If you want to delete photos added by iTunes or other third-party software, you can use EaseUS MobiMover. 

Based on your needs, you can select the right way to remove unwanted photo albums from your iPhone.

Method 1. How to Delete Native Photo Albums on iPhone 

It's a nice option to have your photos organized in albums. In that way, you can easily find the photos you want. However, some albums created themselves by the dates when the photos were uploaded, which may result in hundreds of albums. To remove these albums, you can follow these steps: 

Note: This method only allows you to delete the album but won't affect photos in the album, which means you can still find these photos in the Recents album.

Step 1. Open the Photos app and hit the "Albums" tab. 

Step 2. Then, you'll see all your albums. Tap "See All" in the upper-right corner to enter your albums.

Step 3. Tap "Edit" in the upper-right corner, and then you'll see a red "-" appear at the top-left corner of your album. Tap the red icon and hit "Delete Album" to confirm your action. 

Step 4. Tap "Done" once you've deleted all unwanted albums.
