Whenever there are some interesting or funny things shared by my friends on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, I will take a screen shot to keep those moments on my iPhone. Later on, they are taking up more and more storage space on my iPhone and I find it meaningless to have them on my phone anymore. However, deleting them all one by one would be a daunting and tedious task. Luckily, now iOS 9 provides its users with a simpler way to delete multiple pictures directly from iPhone instead of selecting and removing each and every picture individually.

Follow the steps below to delete multiple photos on iPhone without using a PC:

Step 1: Open Photos app on your iPhone
Launch the Photos app on the home screen. Then you will see the Photos app automatically organizes photos into Collections, Moments, and Years. Tap on "Photos" button at the bottom of the screen, and then select a specific collection to get on "Moments" view. You can have the options to either Select, Share or Delete the pictures.

After previewing the photos, you can click on "Select" button and then tap on one photo. The "Swipe gesture" in iOS 9 enables you to select multiple photos on iPhone by dragging and swiping your finger across the photos wanted and then adds them to the selected list. After that, all photos selected will be marked down on the interface.
