How to Delete WhatsApp Photos from iPhone and Android

Photos take up a lot of storage space on our phones. If you are active enough on WhatsApp, you must be the recipient of several WhatsApp photos. While some make sense and are important, others just feel like spam is taking up space. You can delete these images from your WhatsApp on iPhone and Android.

WhatsApp photos can be deleted in two ways – from WhatsApp itself and from the photo viewer (gallery app). The steps and functionality differ for Android and iPhone.

Let's see different methods to delete WhatsApp photos. But before that, you need to understand how WhatsApp media is stored on your phone.

How and where are WhatsApp images saved on Android and iPhone

Generally, you need to tap on the received photo to upload it to WhatsApp. On Android and iPhone, you get a feature in WhatsApp called Media Auto-Download. Once activated, WhatsApp automatically downloads the photos received.

However, the operation differs after their download on WhatsApp. On Android, photos once uploaded to WhatsApp are also saved in the gallery app. You can see them in WhatsApp and the gallery app.

On iPhone, when you receive a photo, it is not automatically downloaded to the camera roll. The photos remain on the WhatsApp servers and are only visible in WhatsApp. You need to save them manually using the Save button present in WhatsApp or activate the "Save to Camera Roll" setting to view them in the Photos app or any other gallery app on your iPhone.

Method 3: delete WhatsApp photos from gallery

You can use any gallery app present on your phone for this method, including the Google Photos app and Apple Photos.

iPhone

On iPhone, only photos that you have saved manually can be deleted from Apple Photos or other apps in the gallery. Deleting WhatsApp photos using this method will not delete them from WhatsApp. They will always appear in the chat.

Launch the Apple Photos app and open the WhatsApp photo you want to delete. You can select multiple photos using the Select option at the top. Then tap on the delete icon and confirm on the next screen.

Launch the gallery app and find the photo you want to delete. Then tap the delete icon.

Now when you delete a photo from the gallery app it will also be deleted from WhatsApp on Android. You will then see a download icon on the photo. You will need to download it again. However, this is only possible if the sender has not deleted the photo from his side. Otherwise, WhatsApp will show you an error message.

Interestingly, if the gallery app, from which you deleted the photo, supports the ability to recover deleted photos within a fixed time, the photo will remain on WhatsApp and in the deleted items folder of gallery application. Most applications consider it a trash or a trash can, which can often be full. Once the specified time has elapsed, the photo will be permanently deleted from your phone and WhatsApp.

Delete for Everyone

When you delete a received photo, it is only deleted from your end and not from the sender's side. However, WhatsApp has a feature where you can delete a sent message from the receiver's end too.
