Apple has released another update, iOS 17.5.1 for iPhone users, specifically to fix the issue with deleted photos reappearing in the Photos library after users updated their device to iOS 17.5 last week.

According to Apple, this latest update tackles “a rare issue where photos that experienced database corruption could reappear in the Photos library even if they were deleted”.

After affected users took to social media platforms to criticise the issue last week, Apple appears to have responded by fixing the problem without addressing it in a statement.

Numerous iPhone users voiced their concerns over the privacy issues raised by the bug, particularly for those who had already sold their device to someone else.

Some claimed on Reddit and X (formerly Twitter) that others had already viewed their deleted images due to the bug.

Users are advised to install the new update promptly to resolve the issue.
