    Hi guys, I don't know how, but after I last synced my iPhone 6 (running ios 10.2) almost all my pictures in Photos (and photos tab) have been duplicated. I tried to delete some of them by clicking Select but the delete option is greyed out. When I synced I didn't change any settings at all in the Photos app on the Mac. I did make changes to the Music tab of itunes.


    What have I done wrong? And how can I fix it?

    I discovered recently, it's because I wasn't deleting after import.

    Thanks mate. But I don't think it's got anything to do with deleting after Import. I've never deleted after Import and have never ha duplicates. This is the first time.

    It didn't do it to all my stuff but certainly had some duplicates and some didn't, really frustrating how Apple didn't think to have a way to cross check duplicates.

    Hopefully the new OS versions address this!
