0 Views 0 min read

The best way to watch a movie for moviegoers is to download it on the device. In that way, you can enjoy your favorite videos without buffering or interruptions. But as time goes by, the videos you download will eat up your phone storage. To free up more storage for new videos, you may need to remove old videos. In this guide, we will show you two different ways to delete videos from the iPad. 

Method 1. How to Delete Videos from iPad 

There are three situations where you may need to delete iPad videos. You can learn about each case and select the right way to remove videos from your iPad. 

To delete videos recorded by yourself, you can:

Step 1. Open the Photos app, and go to the "Albums" tab.

Step 2. Choose "Videos," and then see all videos you record with your device.

Step 3. Click "Select" from the upper-right corner and select the video you wish to delete.

Step 4. Tap the trash icon in the lower-right corner and tap "Delete Video" to confirm your option.

Step 2. The following steps will differ depending on your iOS version.

  • On iOS 8: Tap "Usage" > "Manage Storage" > "Videos." Select the video you want to delete, swipe it to the left, and tap "Delete."
  • On iOS 9 and higher: Tap "General" > "Storage & iCloud Storage" > "Manage Storage" > "Videos." Select the video you wish to remove, swipe it to the left, then tap "Delete."

Method 2. How to Delete Videos/Movies from iPad Quickly and Easily
