How to Delete Duplicate Photos on iPhone

I have downloaded a lot of pictures in Photo library, but some of them are either duplicate or blurry. I found it difficult to delete them because I can't even find the remove button! Is it possible to delete duplicate photos in an easy way? I would add that the duplicate ones are hard to find. So how can I quickly find them? Your suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Many iPhone users have complained about the same problem. Don't worry. I'm sure we can work it out by taking the below plans. I now present to you two solutions, one of which you can try to remove the duplicate ones.

Solution 1: Delete Duplicate Photos on an iPhone Manually (free of charge but cumbersome process and time-consuming)


If you are able to delete photos directly from your iPhone, you can remove the duplicate photos in this way.

iPhone running on iOS 5 or iOS 6:

Enter "Photo" app, find the duplicate photo and tap "Trash Can" at the bottom-right to remove it. But you need to remove the photos one by one. If you have to delete a large number of photos, the process is cumbersome and time-consuming.

iPhone running on iOS 7:

This latest version allows you to delete multiple duplicate photos at the same time. You need to find and select the duplicate photos one by one in the photo collections and tap "Trash Bin" to remove them.

Finding the duplicate photos in a large number of photos is not so easy. Repeating same steps of deletion waste time. So is there any easy way? See solution 2.

Solution 2: Remove Duplicate Photos on an iPhone with a Tool (faster and more accurate)

It's wise to use a professional tool to help you find those duplicate photos and delete all of them just with one click. Wouldn't you like to save time?
