    Hello all,
    I have a weird thing going on where I have both my Photos Library backing up to the iCloud backup and the iCloud photo library is turned on too... It was my understanding that this should not happen, and it is also stated as such in Apple’s support documentation.

    My question is, has this happened to others? and if so, what have you done to remedy this?

    Have you recently ran a restore on a new phone from a previous backup?

    If so, until iCloud makes a backup it shows the Photo Library as a separate item needing backing up. Once all your photos have been backed up to iCloud the Photo Library part of backup will disappear and at the bottom of the Manage Storage/your iPhone it will say "Photo Library is backed up separately as part of iCloud Photo Library".

    Yes I did. I did not know about this behavior. Thank you @Beards for the prompt reply!

    No problem . I know what it is like to go through worry, frustration,irritation etc. whilst you patiently hope and wait there is an answer.
