If you want to clean iPhone photos up, ok, you can tick the targeted ones, and then simply press on button "Delete" to get rid of them. However, this deletion is not perfectly finished, since technology is always developing some data recovery software, such as iPhone Data Recovery, so as to restore deleted files from iDevice, like iPhone, iPad or iPod.
No matter what the really reason it is (protecting privacy or setting aside more iPhone space), to permanently erase photos from iPhone, you are recommended to install a third-party software: iPhone Data Eraser. It offers 3 ways to completely wipe out unneeded pictures, which are very easy to handle.
Note1: Images, as well as messages, contacts, call history, and other categories of files can be easily removed within several clicks.
Note2: All contents deleted by iPhone Data Eraser would be irrecoverable, so, backup them on iTunes or iCloud before erasure if there is a need!
Now let's start! Have the right erasing program installed onto your computer.
Below is the guide about how to erase photos from iPhone, which is divided into 4 parts:
Link iPhone to computer via a USB cable. If this is your first time, you will see the following interface on your iPhone screen. Simply press "Trust" to continue.
If the window says "Hello iPhone" and shows you the detailed information of your handset, then your iPhone is perfectly detected.
Step1. Connect iPhone to PC and launch iPhone Data Recovery
Launch erasing software and click on "Erase Private Data".
Step2. Scan iPhone files and clean pictures up
When you click "Start Scan", all kinds of private files are analyzed. The results can be previewed as below.
Note that only the existing files can be previewed further, while the deleted ones cannot. In other words, it enables you to check photo details, except the deleted documents. Tick both of them and click "Erase Now". And when it is finished, press "Done".
Step1. Scan lost data
Choose "Erased Deleted Files" on the left side, then tap "Start Scan". After a while, you are able to see an interface filled with deleted items.
Step2. Delete iPhone images
See "Photos" right there? Tick it! Then press "Erase Now" and wait for a few minutes. Lastly, hit on "Done" to end.
Step1. Enter "delete" to confirm
Select the last method "Erase All Data". "Medium Security Level" is recommended because it is enough for most iOS users and it saves time. Then type the word "delete" and click "Erase Now".
Step2. Wait for the erasure to end
The erasing program will clear all contents in sequence, including pictures, settings, private data, and so on. After that, your handset will restart automatically.
To make sure that information cannot be restored, the iDevice will be overwritten and then free up the space. When you see "Storage Almost Full" on the phone screen, tap "Done".
Note: You are able to erase the cache of movie and music apps for a free trial.
