Anyone who has ever used an iPhone knows that there is a feature on the iPhone that has a "recently deleted" folder in your album, which is dedicated to recovering deleted photos.But if I don't want to recover these photos, how can I delete them altogether? I don't want anyone else to get them.

I was talking to my sister yesterday , can you guarantee that they will be completely deleted?

Law enforcement / specialist data recovery companies have the capability to potentially recover deleted files from phones using commercially available software. With any data storage device the data is only truly deleted when it is successfully overwritten

It will take a long time to cover them successfully,And before that everyone has a chance to recover, I think it's very irrational.

If you are paranoid that someone is going to steal your phone, break the virtually unbreakable encryption just to recover your deleted pictures then either upload music or videos or whatever from iTunes that completely fills the phone then delete it.

Can it be done without any recovery?
