A top tip is to use Apple’s Photos app feature to remove duplicate photos.

This will automatically detect duplicate images and give you the option to remove them.

It is a new feature that was only made available in iOS 16.

So first go to Settings > General > Software Update and make sure you are using the latest iOS version.

It is very likely that you have a bunch of duplicate photos in your camera roll.

But tracking them manually will take some time, so let your iPhone do it for you.

To find them, first open the Apple Photos app.

Then go to Albums at the bottom, then scroll down until you see Duplicates at the bottom.

This is a special folder that allows you to review all duplicate media.

You can review each one and tap Merge to remove any duplicate photos or videos.

It is also possible to bulk merge by pressing Select at the top, then Select All, then Merge.

Unsupported iPhones

Unfortunately, it is possible that you may not be able to upgrade to iOS 16 and access this feature.
