How to delete images from SD card after import them into Mac?

I have a trial camera, and up until this week, there was always a pop-up window to delete images from the SD card after import onto my phone. This apparently disappeared with some update recently. (I'm not great about installing updates since they usually seem to take away features rather than provide any benefit, so the update may not have been this week but this is when I noticed it, as I deleted images this way roughly a week ago) This is absolutely not cool and does not work at all for me. How do I delete images from the SD card from my phone?

If you cannot delete the images from your SD card on your iPhone after importing them into your Mac, the best way is to delete your photos on your Mac/MacBook.

You can connect your iPhone to your Mac/MacBook and then format your SD card to delete all the photos. Here's how:

  1. Use a USB cable to connect your iPhone to your Mac.
  2. Open Disk Utility and then choose your SD card.
  3. Click Erase in the toolbar.
  4. Type in a new name and choose the file system.
  5. Click Erase.

After format your SD card, all the photos on it will be deleted.

Except for using Disk Utility, I recommend iBoysoft DiskGeeker for you. It's an all-in-one disk management tool for Mac. You can use it to clean junk files or unwanted files from hard drives, check and diagnose disks, etc. Following the below steps to delete your unwanted photos.

  1. Free download and activate iBoysoft DiskGeeker.
  2. Choose your SD card and click Clean Drive.
  3. Wait until the scanning process is done or ended by yourself.
  4. Select the folders and click Open to browse the files in them.
  5. Check in the folders you want to remove and click Delete All.
