I hadn’t even started typing the title of this post that I could already imagine the comments from witty readers. Of course you know how to delete photos from your iPhone. We all do. It’s so basic even my mom can do it without having to ask for directions.
Yet, deleting pictures directly from your iPhone can be a tedious task if your ultimate goal is to batch remove hundreds, maybe even thousands of photos. In this post, we will show you how to delete photos from the iPhone photo library. We will explore the various options we have for not only deleting photos one by one, but also for deleting all pictures from an iPhone at once.
All this information applies to the iPad too. The process is exactly the same no matter if you want to delete photos from iPad or iPhone. If you want to delete photos from your iPad, just follow the instructions below and you’ll be all set.
If you think you already know it all, I encourage you to take a peek at this post because you might still learn a thing or two… Read More

iPhone photography fans, pay notice: following a major iOS 7 revamp, developer Taptaptap has delivered the first major update for its popular Camera+ app, a $1.99 download in the App Store.

VSCO Cam should be on every iPhone photography fan’s Home screen. The software offers a variety of advanced features making it easy to edit, crop and filter your snaps on the go.
Our own Lory Gil wrote in her review last summer that VSCO Cam for the iPhone and iPod touch is worth downloading, even more so considering that a set of filters included in the free download (with more available via in-app purchases) is enough to keep averages users occupied for some time.
VSCO Cam version 3.0, now available in the App Store, adds a bunch of new features aimed at improving your mobile photography experience. Plus, it wants to become your next Instagram by including the ability to follow individual profiles, a novel feature for a camera phone app and the number one request from users… Read More

Your selfies will receive a significant and much welcomed upgrade next year as Sony – which last week announced plans to unload its computer business and spin off its TV segment – is gearing up to kick off production of front-facing cameras for next-generation iPhones in 2015, if a report from Japanese business site Nikkei is an indication.
The Japanese consumer electronics giant has been making iSight back cameras since the iPhone 4s, with current estimates in the ballpark of a hundred million CMOS sensors a year. It also makes cameras for Samsung and Huawei smartphones.
Therefore, landing that contract would mark a major win for both parties and a huge loss for OmniVision, which currently supplies CMOS sensors for the iPhone’s rather unimpressive front-facing camera… Read More

Microsoft may be dominating your morning news feed with the official appointment of insider Satya Nadella as its new CEO, but that hasn’t stopped the Apple rumor-mill from churning out speculative reports concerning the next iPhone.

You’re already familiar with iPhone photography, aren’t you? And I take it those among you who attend trade shows have by now caught wind of the rise of iPad photography, no? As if using an iPad to snap photos in public wasn’t embarrassing enough, Sony has now produced a dedicated camera attachment aimed at tablet owners which allows its portable QX-10 or QX-100 lens to be snapped on.
The SPA-TA1 attachment is designed for tablets between 85mm and 190mm in width so it’ll work with your iPad Air (169.5mm) just fine. Available in various sizes from April 4 in Japan and coming elsewhere soon after, it’s bound to give iPad photography a whole new meaning, for better or worse… Read More

One of the iPhone 5s’ flagship features, the Camera app’s baked-in slow motion mode, is now available to owners of older devices like the iPhone 5, and the iPod touch 5th generation. Slo-mo Mod is the jailbreak tweak that makes it so that slow motion mode is no longer an iPhone 5s exclusive.
I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical when I first heard of this tweak, but after giving it a shot, I came away thoroughly impressed. No, it doesn’t allow you to have 120 fps video capture, but it will do 60 fps on the iPod touch 5th-gen hardware, and that’s more than enough frames to come away with some excellent looking slow motion video.

If you’re an avid iPhone photographer and find that the handset’s tiny lens just isn’t cutting it anymore, there are a number of add-on lens kits to choose from. Olloclip makes several, Sony makes one, and there are countless options from lesser-known brands.
These kits usually only contain a couple of lenses, but a company called Bazaared is taking things a step further with its Ultimate iPhone Lens Kit. It includes 5 lenses, a tripod and carrying case, and it’s being heavily discounted right now over at Stack Social… Read More

While it is not the most groundbreaking jailbreak tweak on Cydia, CamBlur7 is a new package that works in unison with TransparentCameraBar to add a translucent blur effect to the top and bottom bar of the Camera app UI on iOS 7. The tweak has a number of options that are configurable through the Settings app for adjusting the blur level and hiding the blur in filter or video mode… Read More

Moment, a new clip-on camera lens attachment for the iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices, has launched on Kickstarter, with a pair of lenses selling for $50 a pop each. Much like Olloclip, the Moment’s multi-element lens design promises to take your iPhone photography to the next level.
By allowing for low-distortion imaging and minimal chromatic aberration, with easily swappable lenses coming in handy when you need to quickly switch from shooting a wide scene to capturing detailed closeups. And they certainly look beautiful… Read More

Although the iPhone 5s has only been out for about 4 months now, next-gen iPhone rumors are already ramping up. The handset, believed (for right now, anyway) to be called the iPhone 6, has been widely reported to feature a larger display and other improvements.
Today, a new report from China adds to the chatter by claiming that Apple’s next smartphone should see some camera improvements such as enhanced optical image stabilization. It also calls for the handset to retain the current 8-megapixel sensor for its iSight camera… Read More

Avid iPhone photography fans are always on the lookout for new ways of improving their snaps and photography skills to give their work an added edge.
Pitched as the world’s first private thermal imager, the Flir One case slides right onto your iPhone 5 and lets you “see the heat wherever you go”.
It slides onto your iPhone like an ordinary protective case and displays the infrared world on its screen.
We’re talking true thermal imaging here, not the kinds of fake infrared effects you see in many photography apps on the App Store… Read More

Apple has reportedly acquired app developer SnappyLabs, the one-man photo technology startup behind the app SnappyCam. For those unfamiliar with the title, it was a popular camera app that allowed users to take full-resolution pictures at 20 to 30 frames per second.
SnappyCam mysteriously disappeared from the App Store, shortly after founder John Papandriopoulos announced that he had achieved a breakthrough with “discrete cosine transform JPG science.” He essentially reinvented the JPG image format, and word has it Apple wanted in… Read More

Starbucks, a Seattle-based global coffee company and coffeehouse chain and Apple’s longtime marketing partner, started offering ‘Pick of the Week’ promotion via its recently Passbook-enabled App Store app back in 2011. The tie-in allows Starbucks customers to download paid iOS applications for free as they sip on their beverage of choice.
The company has now upgraded its backend system to allow folks to scan these redemption codes using their iPhone’s iSight camera, a feature Apple added to iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices as part of its iOS 7 software release in September 2013… Read More

Good news for 500px users this afternoon. The popular photo sharing site has updated its iOS client with a handful of design and performance improvements, including some new iOS 7 UI tweaks and a new animated login screen.

If you’re an iPhone photography fan and follow me here on iDownloadBlog, chances are you’ve by now figured out that Taptaptap‘s Camera+ is my go-to photography application for the iPhone and iPad.
After failing to jump on the initial iOS 7 app update bus, the team has finally pushed a major update for the iPhone and iPod touch edition that includes substantial iOS 7-makeover along with the flattened app icon and a bunch – and I really mean a bunch – of new tools and filters.
Jump past the fold for the full reveal… Read More

Following a significant delay, the Internet giant Google finally released its free Wallet for iPhone app back in September 2013. But in bringing its troubled mobile payment service to Apple’s platform, Google left out some of the capabilities found in Wallet’s Android counterpart, such as the ability to make in-store payments with the app (not surprising considering iPhones lack NFC). The company added a few new features via two recent updates and today the Wallet app has been refreshed with some new functionality.
For starters, you can now instantly sign on to Wallet if you use other iOS apps from Google. Google previously rolled out this rather useful feature to its popular iOS apps, allowing you to, say, just tap your Google Account already used in Chrome in order to log in to the Gmail iOS app.

A monster 600+ page Apple patent application surfaced yesterday, detailing some of the things it’s been working on with Touch ID. It mentions using the sensor underneath the Home button as a trackpad, and even talks about embedding the sensor right into the iPhone’s display.
Today, a new invention by Apple has popped up on the web, this time for a patent that it has already been awarded. It’s called ‘Digital camera including refocusable imaging mode adaptor,’ and it details a camera that includes refocusing capabilities—similar to that of the Lytro… Read More
