Sooner or later, you might start to realise that duplicate photos are beginning to accumulate. It is essential to take the time to organise the photographs app on your smartphone and delete unnecessary data because the same photographs can quickly fill up the storage space on your iPhone.
When you take many photos of the same place, person, or object in an effort to get the ideal viewpoint, stance, or lighting conditions, you are creating duplicate photos on your iPhone.
Such Photos are not identified as duplicates by iPhone, and you cannot merge them. Finding and manually deleting such duplicate photos on your iPhone is the only method to get rid of them.
Delete Duplicate Photos on an iPhone Manually
- Go to the Photos app. Open the Recents Album by tapping the Albums tab in the bottom menu.
- Tap the Select button in the top-right corner once you are in the Recent Album.
- Tap on the duplicate photos to select them. After finishing, touch the Trash option to remove the chosen Photos from your device.
- The Trash Can for the deleted photos will remain open on your device. So, navigate to the ‘Utilities’ section on the bottom and select Recently Deleted Folder.
- Select from the top-right menu in the Recently Deleted Folder by tapping it.
- ‘Recover All’ and ‘Delete All’ options will appear in the bottom menu once you tap on ‘Select’. Tap on the Delete All option to remove Photos permanently.
