When the iPhone is short on space, the first thing people do is head over to Photos and delete extra images or transfer them to their PC that may take up all the space. Here are simple steps on How To Transfer Photos from iPhone to a Windows 10 PC. One reason for this is that Apple users have the advantage of clearing all their albums and still be able to view their images via the Cloud app.
With this perk, they can easily make space on their phone without losing a single picture. However, since Apple does not offer a “Select All” option to its users, deleting pictures in one go is not possible. Pictures have to be selected manually, or you can employ a simple trick to select them in one shot.
Steps to Delete All Photos From iPhone
Here’s the secret of selecting and deleting multiple images in one go!
On your iPhone, go to ”Photos > Albums.”
In “My Albums,” tap and select the “All Photos” album or any specific album.
Tap on the picture at the bottom and then, without lifting your finger, slide all the way to the left and then scroll to the top of the screen. Let your finger stay at the top in the upper left corner as the photos get selected when the screen scrolls down.
After all the pictures are selected, tap the trash icon in the lower right corner—Tap “Delete #### items” to confirm and clear the album.
Your album will now be clear, and all images will be deleted.
But what if you delete an image accidentally and want to restore it? We have a tutorial for that too!

How to Recover Deleted Images on an iPhone
Once you delete images from your iPhone, they don’t get removed from your device instantly. Instead, they get transferred to the “Recently Deleted Folder.” To restore them, follow the steps mentioned below:
Open “Photos > Albums > Recently Deleted Photos.”
Select the images you want to restore. You will see 2 options at the bottom, “Delete” or “Recover.” Click on “Recover.”
You will get a prompt to “Recover ## Photos” or “Cancel.”
Click on the first option to transfer the images back to “Photos.”
However, if you want to delete images from your iPhone permanently, you can click on “Delete” in the 2nd step.
Here, we’d like to add that if your phone is synced with iCloud, the photos you delete on your iPhone will be deleted from iCloud as well. But, if you’re deleting images just for the sake of freeing up space on your device, you can save your images on iCloud and then turn off syncing before deleting them from your phone.
Let me show you how to go about the whole process:
How to Save and Delete Photos on iCloud
To save your photos on iCloud, you will have to sync your device with iCloud. Following are the steps for it.

Now, go to “Photos” and select the ones you want to delete.
Click on the trashcan icon to delete selected images.
