by Victor Ng

If you’ve recently updated your iPhone with the latest iOS 15 software, be weary of deleting your deleting your message threads on the Messages app, because you may lose some of your precious photos in the process. 

A bug has been found by Twitter user @superezfe and reported by MacRumors that happens when your iCloud performs a backup – that action triggers the bug that deletes any photo in your cloud storage should you delete the message thread you saved it from.

MacRumors have detailed the steps to replicate the bug to show you what not to do: 

  1. Save a photo from Messages conversation to your Camera Roll. 
  2. Check to see that the photo has been saved. 
  3. Delete the thread from which you saved the photo – however, the item will still be in you iCloud Photo Library. 
  4. Perform an iCloud Backup or wait for it to happen automatically, and the photo will disappear.
