    when I transfer my photos, the (Windows) program we use reports it can't delete the transferred photos on my iPhone 6+ because they are all write-protected.

    I now have far too many pictures on my phone, so I need a solution, both for deleting the ones remaining on my phone and for the future so this doesn't come up any more. In Windows/DOS of course I can change protection, but have no idea how to do it in an Apple device. Or prevent recurrence.

    Thanks.

    Did you originally sync your photos to your iPhone using a different PC?

    I don't remember syncing it at all. It would have been years ago with my 4. But the same PC, if I did.
