In today's digital age, the threat of impersonation and identity theft is more real than ever. A friend's unfortunate encounter with an impersonator's Facebook account, which contained personal information and stolen pictures, served as a wake-up call for me. As I prepared to gift my iPhone to my little niece, I realized the importance of securely erasing all photos and videos from the device. Despite using the iPhone for only a short time, the accumulated video editing files had consumed significant storage space, prompting the need for efficient deletion. To ensure my niece received a clean and safe device, I began by backing up my iPhone on my iCloud account, safeguarding my cherished memories while preparing for a fresh start. However, as I ventured into the Photos app, I encountered the absence of a "select all" feature, making the process of deleting thousands of photos and videos seem daunting. Further emphasizing the necessity of learning effective deletion methods. It's vital to manage your iPhone's storage effectively, especially if you plan to gift, sell, or simply free up space on the device. In light of this experience, I am eager to share some valuable tips on how to back up and delete photo and video files on your iPhone with ease. With these techniques, you can ensure a clutter-free device, preserve your cherished memories, and protect yourself from potential security threats. Why Deleting Photos and Videos on iOS Is Important Gift or Sell: If you are planning to sell or gift your iPhone, it is always good to delete all files for security reasons. The recipient of the iPhone will be more satisfied with the gift if it's free from all your files. Slow Performance: If you notice that your iPhone is taking forever to perform tasks, one sure way to get your iPhone back to optimum performance is to delete unnecessary files. Freeing up storage: Even when your iPhone is not running slow, if you want to have space for more important files on your device, one easy way is to delete videos and photos. Even the latest iPhones with the largest internal memory have limitations to the number of files they can hold. The iPhone with the largest memory capacity is iPhone 14 Pro with 1TB, but it is still exhaustible. Virus attack: One easy troubleshooting solution to rid your iPhone of viruses is by deleting all files. Your iPhone will be virus-free and feel like new again. Booting issues: Whenever your iPhone fails to boot, a nice way to solve the issue is to restore and delete all photos and videos using iTunes. Enhancing device performance: If you feel like your device is no longer performing at the optimum level, a quick solution, after backing up your device, is to delete all videos and photos. Confidentiality & parental control: If your phone is always accessible to children, and you have content rated beyond their age, you may also need to delete files from it. Security: If you have media files that could jeopardize your security on your iPhone, you may need to delete videos and photos. When You Delete Photos From iCloud, Are They Still on Your iPhone? It is worth noting that when you delete a photo from iCloud, it will be removed from all iOS devices connected to the iCloud account including your iPhone.  One of the most reliable ways to free up space on your iPhone is to save files on iCloud. However, just like your iPhone, the storage capacity of your iCloud is limited. Without upgrading your iCloud account, it will only accommodate 5GB of videos and pictures. Nevertheless, you can delete files that are no longer useful and free up space to back up more important data. Here is how to delete photos from iCloud but still have them on your iPhone.  How You Can Delete Photos From Your iCloud and Still Have Them on Your iPhone Photos App Open the Settings application on your iPhone. Tap your iCloud name or your Apple ID name. Tap iCloud. Under Apps Using iCloud, tap Photos. Tap Download and Keep Originals.  What Is the Difference Between ‘Download and Keep Originals’ and ‘Optimize iPhone Storage’? These two features are different from each other. The "Download and Keep Originals" feature is designed to help you keep a copy of all photos and videos on your iCloud account. The files on your iCloud will be downloaded to every device linked with your iCloud account. Therefore, when you delete a video or photo from iCloud, it will retain the downloaded copy of the file on your iPhone. On the other hand, when you choose the "Optimize iPhone Storage" feature, you are reducing the file size of photos and videos on your Photos app. In this case, your iCloud account will save all photos and videos on your iPhone in full size and resolution. However, a less heavy version of each file will remain on your iPhone's internal storage. This setting is especially important when you are trying to conserve space on your iPhone. Creating a BackUp Before Deleting Videos and Photos from Your iPhone You can delete files that you are sure you don't need without taking precautions. However, when dealing with files that you will need in the future, here are a few suggestions on how to save a version of these files in a safe place: Backup with iCloud: Follow the steps below to back up your iPhone on iCloud: Go to the Settings app and tap your name. Tap iCloud to access iCloud-related settings. Connect your iPhone to the internet if it's not yet connected; you will need an internet connection throughout the process. Tap iCloud Backup  Toggle on Back Up This iPhone  Tap Back Up now to start a process that will save all your photos and videos on iCloud.  Note that if you receive a message during the backup process that your iCloud account does not have enough storage to complete the backup, it implies that you have exhausted your 5GB free storage space from iCloud. You will need to back up your iPhone with a premium account called iCloud+. Here's how to increase your iCloud storage capacity from 5GB to 2TB:  Tap Settings  > Your iCloud Name > iCloud  Under Get More with iCloud+, Tap Upgrade to iCloud.  Note that you can also increase the storage capacity of your iCloud account to 4TB with the Apple One Premier plan. Back up your iPhone with your computer: Aside from using iCloud, you can also create a backup for all the videos and photos on your iPhone by saving them on your Mac or PC. It's easy; however, you can learn exactly how to do this in Nick's article on backing up iPhone without using iCloud. Click here.
