iOS 17.1.2: How to Delete an Album from Photos App on iPhone, iPad in 2023

🗓️ April 11, 2022 By ✍️ Jaysukh patel

In our iPhone, we can create as much as a photo album in the Photos app to store the pictures as per the occasion, and the identical photo albums could be deleted. While doing so, iPhone & iPad users have reported that they cannot delete an album from the Photos app. For them, there is no such glitch or system fault that will stop you from deleting photos or albums from the Photos app on iPhone. Don’t try to delete the default albums like All Photos or Camera Roll, Recents, and Favorites, as they cannot be deleted from iPhone.

Another noteworthy point is that when you delete an album from the Photos app, that album’s pictures will still appear on the All Photos album. That allows you to remove unwanted photo albums to reduce clutter without deleting the photos from the device. Unfortunately, iOS doesn’t have any direct option to Delete the album; instead, you have to select Edit, and then the only album can be deleted from iPhone.
