Recurring Bug Alert! iOS 17.5 Users Encounter Revived Vintage Photos Previously Deleted Resurfacing in Photos Once Again

Reports from iPhone users who updated their operating system to the latest version, iOS 17.5, released on Tuesday, have noticed a peculiar issue. Photos that were deleted years ago have reappeared in the Photos app after the update. This phenomenon has also been observed on iPads.

Users on Reddit have reported similar experiences, with one user sharing that four photos taken in 2010 and stored on iCloud have reappeared multiple times after being deleted. This issue does not seem to be related to the Recently Deleted folder, where photos are permanently deleted after 30 days. Instead, it involves images that were deleted months or even years ago, raising concerns about privacy management and the duration for which photos are retained on devices or in iCloud.

Apple has not yet commented on this issue, but some users speculate that iOS 17.5 may have altered the photo library indexing method, causing previously deleted photos to resurface due to their presence in the index.
