Revised iPadOS 17.5.1 Update

Apple has just released a revised version of iPadOS 17.5.1. This surprise update comes two weeks after the initial iPadOS 17.5.1 rollout aimed to fix a widespread issue where deleted photos reappeared in users' libraries

According to Apple, the new updates fix a rare issue reported by users. In this issue, photos that experienced database corruption could reappear in the Photo's library even if they were deleted.

The company explained that the files on NAND storage, a type of memory used in smartphones, aren’t truly deleted when the user issues a delete command. Instead, the space they occupy is marked as available for future use. The current data remains intact until new data is written over it. But still, that shouldn’t result in a deleted photo reappearing in the Photos library.

What's New in iPadOS 17.5.1 (Revised) for iPad 10?

This update focuses solely on fixing the deleted photo bug. If you haven't experienced this issue, that's great news! But installing the update ensures your iPad 10 is running smoothly and securely.

How to Update Your iPad 10 to iPadOS 17.5.1 (Revised)

  1. Back up your iPad: This is always a good practice before any software update. Head to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud > iCloud Backup and ensure your backup is recent.
  2. Plug in your iPad: While not mandatory, connecting your iPad to power ensures a smooth update process. Wi-Fi connection is also essential.
  3. Open Settings: Tap on the Settings icon, which looks like gears.
  4. Navigate to General: Scroll down and tap on the "General" option.
  5. Access Software Update: Look for "Software Update" and tap on it.
  6. Download and Install: If the update is available (it should be for iPad 10 users), you'll see an "Update" button. Tap to download and install the update. Your iPad may restart during the process.
