    Hi! My mum is giving my old phone to my nan. I managed to delete most of the photos on there but there is this one file called 'selfies' in albums and also in photos there is loads that won't delete at all. I don't want people seeing them obviously. Whats the best thing to do? I have tried connecting it up and unchecking the boxes next to the ones I want to delete. Nothing seems to be happening. please help!

    Plug it into your pc and send over anything you want to keep (or do any wireless cloud syncing etc). I believe you sync things through iTunes for apple phones so plug your phone in, open iTunes and find the "sync" area.
    Once you have done that and have everything you want backed up, go into settings and do a hard/ factory/ full (not sure exactly what they call it) reset. It wipes your files, accounts, passwords, settings (everything) from your phone completely so it will be just as it was from the factory (only the pre-installed apps will be there and it will prompt the new user- your nan- just as it will have for you when they start it up again).
