How to Delete Photos From iPhone

These days, with social media apps like WhatsApp, Telegram and Kik installed on your iPhone, a lot of memes and other junk photos can get stored in your phone’s memory. Not all such images are important. Some are just viral images circulated mindlessly. Hence, it is imperative to get rid of all such images, so your phone stays clean and organized. This post is all about ways to delete photos from your iPhone. 

How to Properly Sync the Images on All Your Apple Devices so You Can Easily Delete Them Permanently From Your iPhone?

When it comes to syncing up the media contents from your iPhone, you have three reliable options:

1) Transfer the photos to iCloud 

2) Import them to your Mac

3) Import them to your Windows PC

Depending on what devices you use, you can choose any of the above-mentioned methods. For the sake of this post, I will share the steps involved in syncing up your data on the cloud (which, in my opinion, is the best choice)

How to Transfer the Images to iCloud Photos

Here are the easy-to-follow steps to transfer the images from your iPhone to iCloud Photos:

1) Install the iCloud Photos software on all the Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, your Mac, and Apple TV) you wish to access your photos from. 

2) Sign-in with the same credentials on all your Apple devices.

3) Turn on the iCloud Photos feature by going to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > Photos on your iPhone. Plus, the process of turning on iCloud on other devices is almost the same as that for the iPhone. 

4) Now since all your photos are synced on all your Apple devices, you can delete them from anywhere you want. But remember that when you delete an image from the device, it gets deleted from all the devices (since you are using single cloud storage).

5) Lastly, it is important to check how much storage you have got on your iPhone, so you can decide if you need to transfer some more content to iCloud. You can achieve this by heading to Settings > General > [Device] Storage.

What If I Accidentally Delete an Image? How Do I Get It Back?

There is nothing to worry about if you accidentally delete an image. The only caveat is, you must realize it within 30 days of deleting it.
