How to...

Delete iPhone, iPad, or iPod photos from your Mac or PC computer

By default, iTunes or iCloud will sync your photos in bulk, with little control over the process, and no export options.

Mac users who do not sync their photos via iCloud can delete their photos using their Mac's native Photos app, but there is no equivalent Apple software for Windows users.

With iMazing, it's easy to delete single or multiple photos from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod from your Mac or PC computer without syncing or going through the cloud.

Who is this guide for?

Anyone who wants to:

  • Batch delete multiple photos from their Camera Roll.
  • Easily delete their iPhone, iPad, or iPod's Camera roll from their computer.

Before you begin

Download and install iMazing on your Mac or PC computer

Instructions

Tips:

  • Use the CTRL/Command, or SHIFT keys to select multiple contacts, or messages.
  • Use the buttons in the upper toolbar to alternate between icon, list or column views.

What to keep in mind

  • Mac OS does not allow SHIFT selecting multiple items in icon view. To SHIFT select photos on a Mac Computer, you'll need to be in either list or columns view.
  • You can only delete photos from the Camera section, not from the Photos section.
  • Photos deleted with iMazing are permanently deleted, they will not appear in your 'Recently Deleted' album.
