If you have pictures on your iPhone or iPad that you can't bring yourself to delete, hide them with the Photos app so you won't have to see them every time you open Photos. When you hide images using Apple's Photos app, they're no longer visible anywhere in your library, except for the Hidden album.

Why Would I Hide Photos on My iPhone or iPad?

In most instances, hiding images in the Photos app is ideal for de-cluttering your photo library's view. If you have some pictures that don't flow with the rest of your library and that you can't delete, hiding them is the next best option. Call it a quick fix for digital image hoarding, something many of us are guilty of doing from time-to-time.

In the following Visi tutorial, we'll cover how to hide and unhide images on your iPhone or iPad using Apple's native Photos app in iOS 13.

For this guide, we used an iPhone 7 running iOS 13.5.
