Why can't I delete photo albums from my iPhone?

You may be unable to delete specific photo albums from your iPhone because they are default albums created by Apple, like "Favorites" or "Recents." If your iPhone is synced with iCloud or another device, delete albums from the source first.

What if I accidentally delete all of my photos?

If you accidentally delete all your photos, you can recover them from the "Recently Deleted" album within 30 days. Alternatively, if your photos are backed up on iCloud, you can restore them from a backup.
