Since updating my iPhone 12 to iOS 14.6 I have to restart my phone multiple times a day so that new photos, screenshots or downloaded media will show up in my photos, or the camera roll in any other apps.

I’ve also noticed issues where viewing old photos it gives me some low res version if I zoom in.

If I restart I get the full res version again and any photos I took that hadn't appeared in the camera roll are suddenly there.

My Phone has 64GB of space remaining out of 128GB and is only 3 months old with about 600 photos.

  • Are you low on space?

  • Are you connected to WiFi or on a cellular connection (or both) when you're having this problem? Jul 1, 2021 at 22:27
  • Both, happens at home on wifi and out and about on cell. No other data issues etc, all other apps work fine.

Copying my answer here. - One day there was an update and after that it worked fine. I tried a factory restore, etc, with no luck at all. I worked with Apple Support for about a week trying different things but it wasn't fixed until that next update
