You can also delete multiple layers at once. To do that, go to Layers, and select one of the layers you want to delete. Then to select other layers you want to delete, swipe them to the right. Now, you will notice that all layers have turned blue and are selected.

At the top right corner, you will see two options pop up: Delete and Group. These options will appear only if you have more than one layer selected. So, to delete selected layers, click on Delete. It will ask you if you are sure you want to delete these layers, click Delete again.
