Having too many photos on your Apple device may sometimes mean you’ll need to buy extra iCloud storage on your account to keep up with it all.
For many people, this is an added expense they don’t want to have.
In order to avoid this, users may try to delete the hundreds of unwanted images they have stored on their device, but this takes up plenty of time.
One very useful tool Apple have is in the Photos app – and it removes duplicate images.
This automatically detects snaps that you may have saved more than once, and lets you remove them instantly.
How to remove duplicate iPhone images
In order to find this, simply open the Apple Photos app.
Then go to Albums section, and scroll down until you see Duplicates at the bottom.
Here you’ll find four sections under the Utilities part.
Click on a special folder called Duplicates, where you will be able to view all the double images you have stored on your device.
