If you intend to delete either a few or all screenshots, this is extremely easy to do. Here’s how:
1. Open the photos app.
2. Scroll down until you see Media Types.
3. Tap on Screenshots, then choose Select.
4. Now you can select specific screenshots or pick Select All if you want to delete them all.
5. Send all the selected screenshots to the trash bin.

If you are more selective about which screenshots to keep and lose, or you want the screenshots to be deleted automatically, there’s an ‘Auto-Delete Shortcuts’ shortcut available on iCloud. This is a pretty neat space-saving tool that lets you delete screenshots that are older than a month, or select specific screenshots off-limits for deletion. It even allows you to delete screenshots only when your phone is charging or when you open a specific app. For a full list of features and a user guide of the shortcuts, go to this Gadget Hacks Webpage.
