Unfortunately, iOS 17.5 did not come without problems, so Apple chose to release an interim update. iOS 17.5.1 does not bring any new features to the iPhone, but fixes an annoying problem from iOS 17.5. A number of users suffered from a software error in the Photos app, which caused deleted photos to reappear in the photo library.

Problems with Photos app

In the description of iOS 17.5.1, Apple confirms the photo library issue. This software error did not affect all users, but the problem was significant enough for Apple to release an interim update. The bug in iOS 17.5 ensured that deleted photos remained visible in the photo library. Normally these images are placed in the ‘Recently deleted’ album.

Photos are stored in this folder for thirty days, after which they are permanently deleted from your iPhone. However, the problem did not seem to only occur with this album, because some users even showed up deleted photos from 2010. In any case, it is a problem in the software of the iPhone itself, so deleted iCloud photos are not unintentional returned. Apple fixed the photo library issue in iOS 17.5.1.
