WhatsApp stores duplicate images on your smartphone for a period of time. Of course you want to get rid of that as quickly as possible.

You may have already noticed: WhatsApp recently had an annoying problem saving photos. This caused the image you saved to your gallery to appear twice. So annoying all those duplicate pictures.

The problem started for many iPhone users after installing iOS 17.4. According to Apple, it was up to Meta to resolve the issue. Fortunately, you no longer have this problem thanks to the new update (version 24.5.75). Strangely enough, Android users did not face any problem at all.
