One of the things I use my iPad for is to make backup copies of the images from my wife and my digital photos while we are traveling. I just use the lightning to sd card cable, import the photos and then, when we get home, use iMazing to copy them to my Mac and then delete them from the iPad using the Photos app. That works well except for one annoying thing. The photos don't actually get completely deleted. They sit around in the Recently Deleted folder taking up space, so there is less space for more photos during the next trip.

I suppose they eventually get deleted and I think I saw something somewhere about it taking 30 days, but is there some way to actually completely delete those photos without waiting for that time?
