Photos - Cannot delete photos from Camera Roll

There are a few things to keep in mind if you find that you cannot delete photos from your device:

  • Make sure you are in the Camera view and not in the Photos view
  • Unlock your device. Locked devices will sometimes prevent iMazing from deleting photos.
  • Be aware that:
    • photos cannot be deleted if iCloud Photo Library is enabled.
    • Live Photos and Burst Photos cannot be deleted via iMazing


For instruction on how to delete photos, see How to delete iPhone, iPad or iPod photos from your Mac or PC computer.

If iCloud Photo Library is disabled but an error message is telling you otherwise, follow the steps in this troubleshooting article.
