    Hi guys,

    I’m noticing that sometimes I will take a photo or a screenshot and it will not appear in the Moments section of my Photos app on my iPhone. It will however be located in All Photos.

    It seems to be a bug. I can literally take a screenshot and it will not appear in Moments > I go to All Photos to delete it > I take the same screenshot again > now it appears in Moments.

    Anyone else noticing this?

    Also, today I made a Snap story and the image was saved to All Photos but not to Moments.

    Do you use iCloud photo library?

    Yup, I do. Why, is there a bug related or something?

    There is lag. I can't remember which way it is but once you take a photo, it resides locally but hasn't uploaded to iCloud yet. It's not 100% instant. So sometimes it takes it a few seconds or a minute based on your connectivity. That would explain your issue.

    I've seen it before a few times. I go to find a picture I just took and it's not there. I have to go to the other album (again, sorry I can't remember which way it is) to find it.

    Metadata required for moments was removed/not recorded by the snapchat app.

    Moments are based on time and date, location, etc etc aka metadata. This is data that is attached to images by a smartphone. For privacy this information generally isn't transferred/stored, depending on the app its not even recorded which is likely the case with SnapChat.

    For example this is the 'Info' of a picture I took years ago.

    You can see I was using a iPhone 4S, resolution, file size, the iso the phone was using etc. If you zoom in you can see precisely where I was standing when I took the photo.

    I could even click on it to get directions.

    More info then that can be attached as well like peoples names an such.

    You could see why that could be a problem for people on social media since I could essentially get directions to the persons home.

    Move the image to a computer and check its 'properties' on a PC or 'Get Info' on a Mac. Something moments is looking for isn't there.
