    iOS + iTunes. I sync albums,photos and videos.
    You can not delete the files. For emergencies very bad. E.g I and my friend are for 3 days on festival. My iPhone has 16gb + all my sync albums (12GB). On festival shoot a photo,make videos etc..

    iPhone memory is full because of the new photos,videos. This is normal.
    How can I help myself? I delete the sync albums,photos and videos.

    Now come the problem. This is a fact. iOS can not delete the synced albums,photos,videos.


    Android in my case Samsung Galaxy S5 + Kies. I sync albums,photos and videos.

    This concept is better. For emergencies e.g that with festival, I can delete the file.

    Looking at your past posts, I would suggest you work on your tone (and perhaps grammer).

    Either do a quick online search or at least give some details on whatever was done.

    In iTunes you can choose to sync photos from a location such as a folder. Once these photos are synced to an iOS device they cannot be deleted on the device itself.

    Control of the photos (on the device or not) is controled by iTunes when you sync photos from iTunes. iCloud Photo Library would give you more of the options you're looking for.

    This is bad idea from Apple. Kies(is sync tool for Samsung device) make same method as iTunes. But I can delete the sync photos on device.

    Can you take a screenshot of your iOS Photos? Before there was iCloud Photo Library I recall being able to remove photos even when photos are manually synced.

    See no trash button. This is bad idea from Apple. Why so?? I can not delete the sync albums,photos and videos from iTunes. With my Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Sync tool Kies, no problem!!!

    Huh? you can delete them by holding them down in iOS or even with iPhoto.

    Not really sure what issue you are having based on your attachment.

    You said: I need screenshot. Here show.

    Fact is iOS can not delete sync albums,photos, videos. Test it yourself connect with iTunes select 1 albums e.g with photos and videos. Then sync with your iPhone. Open iOS photo app you can see delete button for sync photos,videos,albums missing.

    The issue he is having is photos that are synced through iTunes on a PC cannot be deleted from an iOS device (unless something has changed). I don't sync photos in this way either because it won't let you delete them.

    You're right. On iOS can not delete the synced file from iTunes. See my 1 post. For emergencies very bad.

    I know this doesn't help you now, but from now on, you should probably manually manage your media. I do, and I can delete videos/music/pictures from my device.

    You keep saying this. First and foremost, don't buy a device with only 12gb of free space available if you're going to sync media to it and fill it up. Not a wise decision there.

    Second, what would you like us to do about the issue? You're posting as if this is news or we can do something about it. It's not news and we can't change it. Only Apple.

    Not an issue really. It's a failure of the user to know and understand the device and how it works. I also wouldn't call being able to delete photos an emergent situation.

    Nooo. Your logic is funny.

    I buy 128gb iPhone. Have 120gb sync media. Then come again this problem e.g that with festival. I can not help myself because iOS not support delete synced media!!

    Except right now you know clearly how much sync media you have and it is not 120GB. Everyone knows that the 16GB iPhone is not enough.


    If you do an automatic iTunes sync of your photos from a particular source/folder, what appears on your iPad will be a clone of that folder. Your computer is always on the top of the hierarchy in this case.
    To delete those photos, you should be deleting the photos from the folder in your computer and performing a resync.

    Deleting the photos on your iPhone will only mean an endless cycle of the photos being resync-ed back.


    May I suggest you get acquainted with iCloud Photo Library which 1. allows you access all your photos 2. optimises your photos storage by downloading full-size photos on demand.

    Noo. In category movies or music no problem. I can always delete the synced movies,music file from iPhone.

    This good idea. But on festival is the receiving very bad.

    Haven't you heard of Dropbox or iCloud Photo Library? Syncing via iTunes is so....pre cloud. Move with the times.

    Your answer lies in iCloud Photo Library. . . Or Dropbox

    Not for me. Dropbox with Touch ID is so much more convenient. Try it and forget this issue.
