I have an iPhone XS, newest IOS 12.1.1. I have a major issue with photos in iMessage. When I go into a person I had an iMessage conversation, click on person's name, then Info and try to retrieve the history of photos that we sent back and force- it would not let me scroll down. It keep on coming back up, I am completely unable to scroll down the pictures and look at the previously shared photos. I have read on different websites that other people having the same issue, but I could not find any resolution or an answer if its hardware or software, also there is nothing on Apple website. Anyone else having this issue?

Some have experienced it. It seems that some betas have had a fix for it, and the latest beta seems to have it as well, going by https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...and-improvements.2159796/page-3#post-26897667, I guess it remains to to be seen if a public release will have a fix for it.

Hmmm, I guess I'll have to wait for more newer updates. At least it is not only XS problem, my friend's 6plus also experiencing the same issue. Went to Apple store and they looked at me like I'm the first person ever having this issue,and of course the only suggestion they had is to erase the phone and set it up as new one. Really? after 2 weeks of buying this phone. Apple store people are clueless

Ahhhhhh why is it taking so long to fix this bug? Too busy deciding which port or pixels/details to remove next instead??

Seems like it's been fixed, just the update with the fix -- iOS 12.1.3 -- hasn't been publicly released yet, although it's looking like that should be happening fairly soon.
