Apple releases revised iPadOS 17.5.1 build for 10th generation iPad

It's been two weeks since Apple released iOS 17.5.1 and iPadOS 17.5.1 to fix a certain issue that caused deleted photos to reappear in the user's photo library. For some reason, Apple released a revamped version of iPadOS 17.5.1 for the 10th generation iPad on Monday.

Updated iPadOS 17.5.1 build for iPad 10

The new build number is 21F91, compared to the original build number 21F90. Based on 9to5Macs According to reports, the new version is only available for the latest entry-level iPad and has not been released for any other iPhone or iPad models.

Although Apple hasn't provided details about why it released a redesigned version for the 10th-generation iPad, it seems likely that the company found a bug that only affects that model.

According to Apple, iOS 17.5.1 and iPadOS 17.5.1 “fix a rare issue where photos that experienced database corruption could reappear in the Photos Library even if they were deleted.” Files on NAND storage aren't actually deleted when you issue a delete command. Instead, the space they occupy is marked as available for future use. The actual data remains until it is overwritten with new data.

However, this should not cause a deleted photo to reappear in the Photos library. In this case, Apple points to a rare issue caused by a corrupted database that resulted in some photos not being completely deleted as expected. However, the problem was never widespread and will be fixed in iOS 17.5.1.

You can update your device to the latest version of iOS by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
