While your iPhone has amazing storage capabilities, storing too many photos can cause some issues. You need to learn how to delete them efficiently, which Apple gives you some easy options for doing so using your iMac or iPhone.\n\nAs you are deleting, what happens when you accidentally delete one you wanted to keep? Luckily for you, Apple also gives you some methods for restoring any photos you delete by mistake that are a snap to learn.\nDelete photos on your iPhone using a Mac\nImage Capture is a low-profile app that comes with your Mac and performs all kinds of convenient tasks, including downloading your photos off your iPhone or iPad.\n\nDelete one or multiple photos from the Photos pane\n\n\tLaunch the Photos app and select Photos in the lower-left corner.\n\tTap All Photos. Alternately you can tap Years, Months, or Days to isolate a subset of photos on your Camera Roll.\n\tTap Select at the top right and tap or tap and swipe to select individual or groups of pictures.\n\tAdd, subtract, or cancel removing photos by tapping the +\/- icon at the upper right.\n\tTap the Trash icon in the lower-right corner to remove the images.\n\tTo delete a single photo, you can also use 3D Touch on an iPhone 6s or later. Tap and hold on a photo to preview it, then tap Delete at the bottom of the menu.\n\nEven if you mistakenly delete an image you want to keep, there is plenty of time to change your mind. When you delete a photo from the Camera Roll it is moved to a Deleted album, like a trash can, except it gets emptied only after 30 days. That means you can remove photos from the Photos app and still have access to them for a 30-day countdown, which is recorded directly on the photo\u2019s thumbnail.\nDelete photos from the Recently Deleted album\n\n\n\n\nThis delete method is helpful if you\u2019re running low on storage space and you\u2019ve already backed up your photos. When you get rid of deleted photos from the Recently Deleted Photos album, it\u2019s forever.\n\n\tGo to Recently Deleted in your Photos app.\n\tTap Select in the upper-right corner.\n\tSelect Delete All in the lower-left corner, or tap the images you want to get rid of and then tap Delete.\n\tA warning will appear that specifies that this action cannot be undone, and when you\u2019re ready, select Delete Photos.\n\nDelete burst photos\n\n\n\n\nSometimes your finger just gets stuck on the Camera shutter button and you inadvertently shoot a series of photos when you only want a single shot. Such Burst photos are the result of the tap and hold action that takes a fast series of photos. Your iPhone\u2019s operating system then automatically selects the best photo from the burst, or you can select the best photo manually. Trying to delete 24 or 100 extra photos is not as easy or obvious as it should be. You can keep your favorite shot while not taking up space on your phone with accidental burst images. Here\u2019s how to do it.\n\n\n\tLaunch the Photos app.\n\tTap on the burst photo (the one with the stacked image icon).\n\tTap Select.\n\tTap a single photo as your Favorite to keep.\n\tTap Done.\n\tTap Keep Only 1 Favorite.\n\nRecover deleted photos\nIf you deleted the wrong photo or group of photos by accident, or you\u2019ve changed your mind about a photo you deleted and want to recover it, it\u2019s easy to get it back. Below are three options for recovering deleted photos on your iPhone.\nRecover photos from Recently Deleted album\nIf you haven\u2019t deleted your photos from the Recently Deleted folder, then iOS will keep these photos for 30 days. Here\u2019s how to restore them.\n\n\tGo to the Photos app.\n\tGo to the Recently Deleted folder.\n\tTap Select in the upper-right corner.\n\tTap Recover, or select individual photos you want to recover and select Recover.\n\tIf you have the iCloud Photo Library enabled, you can use it to navigate to your iCloud account and follow the same steps.\n\nUse your Mac to restore from a backup (iOS 13 and macOS Catalina)\n\nWith iCloud Photos, you can make more space available on your device and have access to your entire collection, everywhere you go. With the Optimize Storage feature enabled, smaller, space-saving photos and videos can stay on your device while all original, full-resolution photos get stored in iCloud. As long as you have enough space in iCloud, you can store as many photos and videos as you want. Apple gives you 5GB for free, and you can purchase more space if needed. Here\u2019s how to get started.\n\n\n\tTap Settings > Your Apple ID > iCloud > Photos.\n\tSwitch on iCloud Photos.\n\tSelect Optimize iPhone Storage to make more space on your device.\n\nAirDrop\n\n\n\n\nAirDrop, part of the Mac OS and iOS, is one of the most convenient and immediate ways to download photos from your iPhone to your hard drive. First, make sure you\u2019re in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range, and turn off your personal hotspot if it is on. Then, open the Photos app, tap the Share button, swipe left or right to select one or multiple photos, and tap the AirDrop user that you want to share with or use AirDrop between your own Apple devices. Storing to your hard drive or a connected drive is completely free.
