How to Delete Multiple Photos From Your iPad
Deleting Multiple Photos from the iPad

Once you put your photo album in edit mode, it is easy to select and delete the photos you want to remove from the iPad.

Did you know you can delete multiple photos from your iPad at the same time? This can be a great tool if you are like me and take dozens of photos trying to get that one great shot. It's also a great time-saving technique if you need to clear out a lot of space on your iPad and have hundreds of photos loaded on it.

Once you launch the Photos app, simply choose the photo album containing the photos you want to delete. If you are not sure of the album, the Photos tab at the top of the screen contains all photos on the iPad.

Next, tap the share button at the top right corner of the screen. This is the button that looks like a square with an arrow coming out of it. On the main screen, the share button is really an edit button that puts your iPad into multiple selection mode.

After you tap the share button, you are ready to select the photos you want to delete. Simply tapping on a photo will put a blue circle with a check mark on the photo.

Continue tapping until you have all the photos selected you want to delete, and when you are read, touch the red delete button at the top of the screen. You will be asked to confirm that you want to delete the selected items, and after confirming, the photos will be purged from the iPad.

That's it. It's a lot simpler deleting the photos all at once rather than going to each individual photo to delete it.
