After iOS 17.5 update, deleted photos reappear on iPhones, say social media users

The latest iOS 17.5 update introduced new pride-themed wallpapers and a word game. But, many Reddit and X users are complaining that, after the update, photos they deleted are reappearing on their iPhones.

This isn’t new, as many beta testers of the iOS 17.5 update reported the same issue. Apple is yet to acknowledge this issue.

When a user deletes pictures from an iPhone on the Photos app, Apple temporarily stores them and gives users an option to restore those for 30 days.
