    When you go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Usage, do your photos take up way too much space? If it says 2.3 gb but you only have 260 photos on your camera roll, then this is how to fix that.
    1. Go to Settings > General > Date and Time > toggle off "Set Automatically". 2. Set the time back 2 years. 3. Go to the Photos app and check the "Recently Deleted" album. 4. Tap "Select" in the upper right corner.

    5. Tap Delete All in the bottom left corner.
    6. Then tap Delete XX Photos.
    6. Go Back to Settings and confirm photos have been reduced from 2.3 gb to the correct number of gb.
    7. Go back to "Set Automatically" in Date and Time and toggle it back on.

    My sister had this issue and her photos were reduced from 2.1 gb to 706 mb.

    It did not work me. The "Recently Deleted" folder was still empty.

    Yup, this is very useful for me. I'd like to share the photos to Tweet, while my local pics take too much phone memory.
