How to Delete an iPhone Photo Album

These procedures are applicable to many additional versions of iOS as well as other iPhone models, including the following:

Step 1: On your iPhone, launch the Photos app.
Step 2: At the bottom of the screen, select the Albums tab.
Step 3: Tap and hold on the album you want to remove.
Step 4: Click the Delete Album button.
Step 5: Confirm by tapping Delete Album again.
This will not delete the photographs in the album, as stated in the confirmation pop-up box. These will still be available through the “Recents” album.
If you want to delete those images rather than simply the album, you must do it from within the Recents album.
You can clear up this tab in the Photos app if it has a lot of albums that you don’t need anymore now that you know how to erase photo albums on iPhone 14.
