How to Delete Photo Albums on iPhone, iPad?

The Photos app on the iPhone/iPad makes it easy to add, organize, as well as delete albums. Plus, you also have the ability to delete multiple albums at the same time from the album-editing screen.

Deleting a photo album doesn’t delete any photos that are inside the album. The photos will continue to be available in the Recent album as well as in other albums.
