How to Delete a Photo Album on the iPhone 5

The images on your iPhone 5 are organized into albums. You may have created new albums on the device to simplify the process of organizing your images, or you might be using certain apps that have generated their own albums in your Photos app. But if you open the Photos app on your iPhone 5 and see that there are albums other than the Camera Roll album, then you can delete those other albums to store all of your images in the same album on your iPhone.
