    When you open any other photo album, the most recent photos are shown right when you open it at the bottom. Recently deleted are backwards, what's the reason for that?

    Apple probably figures if you are going in that album, it's to recover a photo from recent memory. And since the photos are deleted permanently after a month, the list is also relatively short. So it makes sense to have the recent ones at the top so you can see them first. Doesn't really bother me.

    You don't see the ones at the top first, you see the ones at the bottom which are the oldest ones.

    Mine shows the top before the bottom. This is on 8.0 and 8.1 if that makes a difference.

    I'd imagine the reason is to call attention to the photos deleted longest ago as they will be permanently deleted soonest. This would make it easier to go back and save photos you may not actually want to delete before they are permanently deleted.

    I updated to 8.1 this morning and it's still there. I would show you but I can't upload photos from my phone.
