How to Delete a Picture from the iPhone Dropbox App

The Dropbox app on the iPhone is one of the easiest ways to transfer your iPhone pictures to a computer. The automatic upload feature means that you can simply launch the Dropbox app, and any new pictures on your Camera Roll will be uploaded to your Dropbox account.

But it is very easy to run out of space in Dropbox (and on your iPhone, too, so it’s helpful to know how to delete iPhone 7 apps), which means that you will need to manage the files in the account to make room for new ones.

One easy way to accomplish this is by deleting photos that you do not need. You can read below to learn how to delete a picture from your Dropbox account through the iPhone Dropbox app.
