Once photos have been imported to your iPhone, you can delete them in several ways:
1. Select the photo you want to delete by tapping on it. Then, press and hold down on the photo until it starts to wiggle. Tap the “x” that appears in the corner of the photo and select Delete when prompted.
2. Open the Photos app and select Albums at the bottom. Scroll down to Recently Deleted and tap Albums. Here you can find any photos that have been recently deleted from your iPhone. Select the photo you want to delete and tap Delete.
3. If you want to delete multiple photos, open the Photos app and select the All Photos tab at the bottom. Tap Select from the upper-right corner. Choose all the photos you want to delete and tap the trash icon at the bottom.
Select Delete when prompted.
4. If you synced photos from your computer, you can delete them from iTunes as well. Launch iTunes on your computer and select your iPhone in the sidebar. Click Photos and uncheck the albums or folders with photos you want to delete.
Close iTunes and the photos should be removed from your iPhone.
Why can’t I delete imported photos on my iPhone?
It is not possible to delete imported photos directly from your iPhone. When you import photos to your iPhone, they are stored in the device’s Photos app. However, the Photos app is managed by iOS, meaning only Apple has access to the files stored in it.
For security and privacy reasons, Apple does not allow users to delete imported photos directly from the app.
This means that the only way to delete imported photos is to remove them from the source in which they were imported. For example, if you imported photos from your computer, you would need to delete the photos on your computer’s hard drive to also delete them from your iPhone.
The same applies for photos imported from an external source, such as an SD card or a USB drive. Once these photos are removed from the original source, they will no longer be stored in the Photos app on your iPhone.
Can I delete photos after backing up iPhone?
Yes, you can delete photos after backing up your iPhone. Any changes made to your phone after your last backup will not be recorded, which means photos added or deleted after your latest backup will not be saved.
To delete photos after backing up your iPhone, open the Settings app, tap on Photos, and toggle iCloud Photo Library off. Then, open the Photos app and select the folder with the photos you want to delete.
Select the photos, then tap the delete icon in the bottom left corner. Confirm that you want to delete the selected photos. You can also turn off iCloud Photo Library and delete photos directly through the Files app.
Just open the Files app, select the photos you’d like to delete, tap the trash can icon at the bottom right corner of your screen, then tap “Delete”. Keep in mind that you will lose the photos if you restore your device to a previous backup.
Will deleting a backup delete photos?
No, deleting a backup will not delete your photos. When a backup is created, it includes a copy of all your files and data, including your photos. However, when the backup is deleted, the photos will not be deleted from your computer.
The photos are still stored in their original location and will remain on the computer until you decide to delete them manually. Deleting a backup just serves to remove the additional copy of your data, including photos, that was stored in the backup.
How do I delete photos from my phone but not iCloud?
To delete photos from your phone but not iCloud, follow these steps:
1. Launch the Photos app on your iPhone and open the album that contains the photos you want to delete.
2. Tap Select in the upper right corner, then select the photos you want to delete.
3. Tap the trash can icon in the lower right corner.
4. Confirm that you want to delete photos by tapping Delete X Photos.
5. When the confirmation message appears, tap Delete from [Device] Only. This will delete the photos from your phone, but not from iCloud.
6. Once the photos have been removed from the album, select Done in the upper right corner.
When deleting photos from iPhone does it delete from iCloud?
When deleting photos from your iPhone, it will delete them from the device itself, but it will not delete them from iCloud. This means that photos that are stored in iCloud will remain safe and will be available to you on other devices that are connected to your iCloud account.
To delete the photos from iCloud, you will need to go into the Settings app and then tap on the iCloud option. From there, you can select Photos and tap on the Delete button that appears next to each photo that you wish to delete.
After confirming that you want to delete the photos, they will be removed from iCloud. Keep in mind that this will not delete the photos from other devices that are connected to the same iCloud account.
Do photos stay on iCloud forever?
No, photos do not stay on iCloud forever. iCloud storage is limited and photos only stay in iCloud until the storage runs out or you delete them. iCloud storage can be managed from the Settings app on your device, and you can view the available storage space in the Account Settings.
You can also purchase additional storage for a fee if needed. Photos can also be removed from iCloud manually. To do this, open the Photos app and select the photos you wish to delete and tap the trash icon.
The photos still remain in the Recently Deleted album for 30 days before they are purged, so if you delete them accidentally you can recover them at any time during that window.
Where do permanently deleted photos go?
Once a photo is permanently deleted, it is not recoverable. This means that it no longer exists on the device or server that it was stored on. The photo is not kept anywhere and is essentially gone forever.
The photo is also not stored in the cloud, which means it is not retrievable. The same is true for all files that are permanently deleted, not just photos. Permanently deleting files is the only way to ensure that all traces of the file are removed from the device or server it was stored on.
Can I delete photos from my iPhone after importing to photos?
Yes, you can delete photos from your iPhone after importing them to Photos. This can be done in a few different ways depending on how you imported the photos in the first place.
If you used the Photos app on your iPhone to import the photos to your computer, you can delete them directly from your iPhone by opening the Photos app and tapping the “Albums” tab at the bottom of the screen.
From there, select the “Recently Deleted” album and tap on the photos you’d like to delete. You can select multiple photos at once by tapping on them while holding down the Command key. Finally, tap on the trash can icon in the bottom right corner to delete the selected photos.
If you imported the photos via a USB cable or using AirDrop, the photos will still be stored on your iPhone. To delete them, open the Photos app and select the “Albums” tab at the bottom of the screen.
From there, select the album where the photos are stored and tap on the photos you’d like to delete. You can select multiple photos at once by tapping on them while holding down the Command key. Finally, tap on the trash can icon in the bottom right corner to delete the selected photos.
It’s important to note that deleting photos from your iPhone won’t delete them from your computer. To do that, you’ll need to delete them directly from the Photos app on your computer.
Why photos are not deleting from phone?
There could be a few reasons why photos are not deleting from your phone.
The first thing to check is that you are using the correct method to delete the photos. All devices are different and the steps to delete may vary; you should refer to your device’s user guide if you’re unsure.
The next thing to consider is whether or not you are deleting the photos from your phone, or just within an app or directory. If you delete the photos within one of these ‘containers’, they may still be stored on your phone.
You will need to delete them from both the app/directory and from your main photo album to completely remove them.
Another possibility is that the storage on your phone is maxed out. If your internal storage or SD card are full, there won’t be enough free space to delete the photos from your device. You should also check to see if your photos are backed up to an external cloud service, as some services require you to delete the photos from the cloud before deleting from your device.
Finally, if you’re still having difficulty deleting your photos, you may have a virus or malware on your phone. If this is the case, you will need to run a reliable anti-virus software in order to remove the malicious program.
If none of the above mentioned causes seem to apply, it may be a good idea to reach out to your device’s support team and ask them for further help in troubleshooting the issue.
When I delete photos they come back?
When you delete photos from your device, they may seem to come back due to a few different reasons. Depending on how you are deleting the photos, it is possible that the photos are only removed from your device, but still exist in the cloud storage.
If you are using cloud services like Google Photos or iCloud, then it is important to note that deleting photos from the device will not delete them from cloud storage. It is possible that if you are viewing these services from another device or the cloud storage itself, the photos will still be visible.
Additionally, if you are syncing an external device like a digital camera with your device, then it is possible that the photos may be re-synced back to your device. To ensure photos are removed completely, it is best to first delete them from external device and cloud services and then delete them from the device itself.
How do I remove pictures from my iPhone to my computer?
Removing pictures from your iPhone to your computer is a fairly straightforward process. The first step is to open iTunes on your computer. Once open, connect your iPhone to your computer with its USB cable.
Once the phone is connected, iTunes will recognize it and open a new window with all the details of the iPhone. In this window, select the Photos tab. Click the check box next to Sync Photos, then select the folder on your computer where the photos will be stored.
After selecting your folder, click the check box in the lower right-hand corner to confirm your sync settings. Finally, click Apply in the lower right-hand corner. At this point iTunes will import all photo from your iPhone to your computer.
Depending on the size of your photo library, this could take a few minutes or even an hour or more. Once finished, all photos will be in the folder you selected and can be accessed whenever you need.
What happens if you disable and delete photos from iCloud?
If you disable and delete photos from iCloud, the photos will be removed from all associated devices. This includes any devices that are logged into the same iCloud account, as well as any computers that are associated with the account directly through the iCloud website or Apple Photos app.
Disabling photos from iCloud will not delete the photos from any of the associated devices directly. However, if the associated devices are set up to synchronize with iCloud, any changes made to the photos on any device will be automatically removed from all associated devices.
Additionally, if iCloud backup is enabled, disabling and deleting photos from iCloud will prevent them from being included in future backups.
Why is my Mac only showing imported photos?
If your Mac is only showing imported photos, it is likely due to a setting in the Photos app that instructs the app to only show photos that have been specifically imported into it. When the Photos app is first launched, it will scan your Mac for any photos or videos stored on it and present you with a list of all the media files it has found.
From there, you can select the files you want to import into the Photos app. Once imported, these files will be the only files visible within the Photos app unless you change the setting to show all files on the Mac.
To do this, simply go to the Preferences menu in the Photos app, and make sure the option to “Show all files from my Mac” is selected. If this is not selected, only imported photos and videos will be visible in the Photos app.
