Deleting a photo album does not delete any photos in the album. The images will continue to be available in the Recents album and in other albums.
To start the process, open the “Photos”; app on your iPhone or iPad, then navigate to the “Albums” tab.
You will find all your albums in the “My Albums” section at the top of the page. Click the “See All” button in the upper right corner.
Now you see a grid with all your albums. Just click the “Edit” button at the top right.
You will now be in album editing mode, similar to the home screen editing mode. Here you can drag and drop albums to rearrange them.
To delete an album, simply press the red “-” button located in the upper left corner of an album image.
Then confirm the action from the pop-up message by selecting the “Delete album” button. You can delete any album other than the “Recents” and “Favorites” albums.
After confirming, you will notice that the album will be removed from the My Albums list. You can continue deleting albums by following the same process. When you are done, click the “Done” button to return to your albums.

From the context menu, select the “Delete album” option.
Now you will see a popup asking for confirmation. Click the “Delete” button here.
