    With the new iOS 13.1.2 there is a problem deleting photos. When I send or receive text photos I delete the photo from the text string. I delete the photo from "photos" and then delete the deleted photos. Now, go back to the text message and at the top of the text string is the person's name. Tap the name and then tap "info." The photos appear there even though they are not visible in the text string. This has always been the case. Prior to iOS 13 you simply tapped the photo and the option to delete was there; do that and it was gone. Now under iOS 13 when you tap the photo several options appear, one being "delete." Tap that and a red "delete attachment" appears. You can tap that, but the photos are still there. I've even completely deleted the person from the text history, but when you start a new conversation with them the old photos are still there. So all these photos and videos are sitting there taking up space on the phone and there is no way to delete them.

    Thoughts?

    I just tested it and I’m getting the same results. Have you provided feedback to Apple? If not, please do so. Thanks.

    I also am experiencing this issue. Here's a link to send feedback to Apple:

    Interesting.

    Take a look at my post in this thread:
    https://forums.imore.com/imessage/42...ml#post3166447

    I just went back to my friends iMessage, tapped their name, went to info, scroll to the bottom and select See All Photos, and the photos I deleted are gone from the iMessage, but they are still in iCloud Photos.

    iOS 13.1.2 official.

    Maybe mine's working right?

    I have to delete the entire text thread in Messages now to actually delete them all. They removed the ability to mark them all for deletion in the Details section of Messages.

    Would hardware make a difference? I’m on the 11 Pro Max and I can delete photos in an iMessage and they are gone.

    Mine was doing that in iOS 13 and 13.1. It's not doing it in 13.1.2.
