The Photos app on the iPhone and iPad makes it easy to add, organize, and delete albums. Plus, you can delete multiple albums at the same time from the album-editing screen.

When you delete a photo album, it doesn’t delete any photos that are inside the album. The photos will continue to be available in the Recents album and in other albums.

To start the process, open the “Photos” app on your iPhone or iPad and then navigate to the “Albums” tab.
