In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

It would be permissible to delete photos containing Quranic verses. {1}

Rather, it is better to delete them in order to save them from desecration.

A person intention of deleting the photos is to safeguard the Quranic Verses from any kind of disrespectful and no intent of any sorts of impoliteness towards the Qur'an or Verses of the Glorious Qur'an.
