A critical bug within the iOS 15 Messages app may cause some saved images to be deleted, in accordance with a number of complaints we have heard from MacRumors readers and Twitter customers.

iOs 15 Photos Feature
Should you save a photograph from a Messages thread after which go on to delete that thread, the following time an iCloud Backup is carried out, the photograph will disappear.

Although the picture is saved to your private iCloud Photograph Library, it seems to nonetheless be linked to the Messages app in ‌iOS 15‌, and saving it doesn’t persist via the deletion of the thread and an ‌iCloud‌ backup.

To duplicate this bug, the next steps should be taken:

  1. Save a photograph from a Messages dialog to your Digicam Roll.
  2. Test to see that the photograph has been saved.
  3. Delete the Messages dialog the photograph got here from. The photograph will nonetheless be in your ‌iCloud Photograph Library‌ at this level.
  4. Carry out an ‌iCloud‌ Backup, and the photograph disappears.

It is a concern as a result of most customers preserve the ‌iCloud‌ Backup characteristic enabled and it is one thing that occurs mechanically. Should you’re somebody who frequently deletes message threads, if there is a photograph that you simply wish to preserve, you will not be capable to preserve it with ‌iCloud‌ Backup turned on. We examined this bug on an iPhone working iOS 15.1 beta 2 and had our photograph deleted after deleting the Messages thread and performing an ‌iCloud‌ Backup, so the problem has not been addressed within the present beta as of but.

Till this bug is mounted, in the event you’ve downloaded images from the Messages app, you will wish to ensure to maintain these Messages conversations and never delete them to forestall them from being mechanically eliminated out of your gadgets.

(Thanks, Chad!)
