I cannot view my photos on my iPhone 7 plus although it takes up 13GB of storage. It happened last Sunday, March 31, 2019, I was about to send a photo thru messenger when I noticed that the picture selection wouldn't load. So I checked out photos and found out I couldn't view them. There's a note on the bottom that it's restoring. I haven't been able to find any fix to problem, please help. Thanks.

PS: I can take photos or screenshots but I do not know if they are actually saved.

Try out from the following options to make it work:-

  1. Reset Network Settings There is a chance that the culprit is the networking. To be specific, your iPhone is syncing photos to the cloud. Yet, the networking is not fine. Thereby, you see that it keeps deleting and restoring photos. Under this circumstance, you should reset network settings. Just go to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Reset Networking Settings”. Then, enter your password and confirm “Reset Networking Settings”.

  2. Turn off Cellular Data Moreover, this issue may result from unstable or malfunctioning Cellular Data. Therefore, you can try to fix it by turn off cellular data. Just Launch “Settings” app. Then, in the new screen, you can tap the “Cellular” option. In subsequent “Cellular” screen, you need to tap the green switch beside the “Cellular Data”.

  3. Turn on Airplane Mode If you encounter this issue when you attempt to import files, you can solve it by turning on “Airplane Mode”. Likewise, get access to the “Settings” application on your iPhone. Then, locate the first “Airplane Mode” option and tap on the switch next to it.

  4. Change iCloud Settings What’s more, there is a likelihood that the criminal is improper iCloud settings. On your Mac, get into “System Preferences” > “iCloud” and uncheck the “Photos”. Then, in “System Preferences”, go to “iCloud” > “Photos” > “Options”, and next uncheck “My Photo Stream” and “Photo Sharing”. After that, in your iPhone, you should delete the account for iCloud. After that, re-sync iOS device with iTunes. Finally, set up an iCloud account on your iPhone again.

  5. Update iOS System Furthermore, this problem can occur from iOS system bugs. As we all know, older iOS will always contain some bugs. Hence, you should check the version of your iPhone system. If it isn’t the latest version, you have to update it. You can go to “Settings” > “General” > “Software Update”.

  6. Reset All Settings Assuming that all the above solutions cannot help you, you can try the “Reset All Settings” option. This can eradicate multiple system issues. But, it should be the last resort in that it will erase all of your iPhone data. Hence, you had a better back up your iPhone in prior to “Reset All Settings". It can save you from difficult data recovery, similar to Outlook recovery on PC. After backup, just go to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Erase all Contents and Settings”.
