Guide: Create and edit photo albums on the iPhone | iOS 9

To create photo albums in the Photos app, tap the ‘+’ button within the Albums page. Name the album and add photos by selecting them with
a tap.


Once happy with the selection, tap Done to create an album. It can now be accessed from the Albums page as well.

If you want to delete an album, tap Edit and a minus icon will appear next to the album name, enabling its removal.

Note that only albums created on the iPhone can be deleted, not those synced with a computer.

Add to albums

Want to add more photos to an album later? Just browse the pictures in the Photos tab in the Photos app.

Then in the Moments view, tap the Select option and choose the pictures you want to add to an album.


Tap Add To at the bottom of the screen to reveal all current albums. Then either select one of these or the New Album option at the bottom of the list.
