Hello AnonymousSuomynona,



Thank you for using Apple Support Communities. Based on your post, you're missing photos from the 'Shared with You' album. We'll do our best to assist with this.



Did you happen to delete the conversation where these photos were originally shared or did you delete these photos within the Messages app?



If so, this would be expected behavior for this feature. The Shared with You album will contain photos shared with you, but this folder does not save these images there, unless you save them to your library.



If you delete them from the conversation or the conversation itself, then they will be deleted from within this folder.

Hoping this helps out, take care.

No, I haven't deleted the photos themselves from the conversation, and neither have I deleted the conversation. I have also saved the images shared with me in my library. It's just that I don't see them under the "Shared With You" tab.

Hi AnonymousSuomynona,



Good to know. If you open up the Messages app (if that's how it was originally shared with you) and tap on the name at the top of the conversation, do you have 'Show in Shared with You' enabled here? If not, you'd want this to be enabled in order for it to show up within the Shared with You album.

In case it's already enabled, you can disable it and then reenable it to test this out.



Section, 'Control what shared content appears in apps' here: Use Shared with You on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch



Should it persist, did you save the four images that do show up in the 'Shared with You' album or are these the photos that you haven't had a chance to save yet?



Hoping to hear back, cheers.

It is enabled. I have tried toggling it off and on but no success. I have also tried powering the phone off and restarting it but no success either.



I have saved every photo shared with me but only these 4 show up

Hey AnonymousSuomynona,



Alright. Good thinking with the restart. It sounds like the issue persists after this and has no relation to being saved or not.



If all of the content shared isn't showing up, then we'd recommend to contact Apple directly on the next steps: Get Support



They'll take it from here.



Wishing you well, take care.
