    The "recently deleted" album was added because so many people would delete photos by mistake. This album is like a catch all so if one is deleted my mistake, it can be retrieved. You will have to delete there as well as on the camera roll. I like the feature.
    taz323, TwitchyPuppy and MrMars like this.

    I actually didn't even know there was a trash for photos. Do they stay in trash forever (until I delete them from there) or do they go away after like 30 days or something?

    I think they stay in recently deleted about 30 days, then they self delete permanently.

    They'll delete after 30 days but you can clear them too if you deleted to save space.

    Is there any way to turn this feature off? I agree that it's a good idea but personally deleting everything twice annoys me.

    I honestly forget about it until the question comes up. The only real way to turn it off

    There was a tweak in Cydia that deleted photos permanently. I think it was called NoRecentlyDeleted. I don't know if it's still available. But you would need to jailbreak.
