Apple explained how deleted photos appeared in iPhone Gallery with iOS 17.5

a apple Launched with iOS 17.5.1, it is a fix for a bug that caused old photos, which were already deleted some time ago, to reappear in the Gallery.

To clarify this position, the American company Launched Now a statement explaining the origin of the error and how the images were recovered.

According to the brand, the images resurfaced due to corrupted local files that survived between device updates, due to backups and transfers.

That is, the photos are actually deleted from the gallery and the system, however, due to how NAND storage works, the memory used to store the photo is marked as available instead of being immediately deleted.

This error caused some files to persist due to database corruption which means the deleted files were not actually erased from the device.

With iOS 17.5 installed, these files were restored by the system and were restored from the corrupted state and populated back into the Gallery app.

However, if the device memory is erased properly using the “Erase All Contents and Settings” function, the damaged database will also be erased.
