I literally deleted all my photos and videos and my space storage didn’t change, why?

Asked: Jul 20 2019 | 5:58 pm EDT 572 Views 4 Answers

I have an iPhone 6, 16GB and I clearly need more space just because of that reason. So I transferred all my photos and videos to my computer and than I deleted all the photos and videos of my phone and I still have more than 2GB of space storage occupied by the iPhone Photos App. Can someone help me? Does the IPhone Photos app take more than 2GB alone? I don’t think so.

Can someone help me?
Thanks

Open Photos app, go to Albums section, locate the Deleted Photos folder and empty it.

Welcome to iMore

Photos need the double delete or you can wait till they time out on there own
