In iOS you can delete multiple photos by sliding your finger around, but what if you want to delete all iOS photos and videos? Luckily, we found a way to do that, and it only takes a second or two.Delete all iOS photos by using the Select button.

Delete All iOS Photos and Videos

  1. Open Photos.
  2. In the Albums tab, tap on All Photos.
  3. Tap Select on the upper right.
  4. Slide your finger across the bottom four photos.
  5. While still keeping your finger on the screen, use your other finger to tap on the top middle of the notification bar, over the words “4 Photos Selected.”

This will jump to the top of your camera roll, and since your finger is still on the screen all of your photos and videos will be selected. Then tap the trash can at the bottom right of the screen.

OK I was skeptical at first and you have to use the other finger to tap it and yes I just selected 5500 photos to be deleted! We’ll see how long it takes
It’s handy not to have to delete photos from your phone for a year or two! Always get 256 GB of storage plus my friends 🙂


Thank you! Been looking for a long time to do this via iOS. Why Apple didn’t make a select all button confounds me.
