How does one remove photos from an iPhone 4S? My “camera roll” folder is full of photos and videos (about 1500). Apple is saying that I need to buy more iCloud storage, which I don’t want to do. I plugged the device into a Windows 7 computer and the phone shows up as a drive. I was able to copy all of the photos onto a local disk for backup, but not able to delete any (an easy operation on an Android phone, which functions like a legitimate USB drive when plugged in).
I’ve Googled around a bit and there does not seem to be a straightforward way to delete all of the photos on the phone without selecting each one (1500!) with a touch. There was a hint that someone who purchased a Macintosh ($1000+?) would be able to delete photos by regarding the phone as a disk drive, but I can’t find anything for the Windows crowd.
Thanks in advance.
