One is the sending of iPhone Memojis (iOS) in sticker format in conversations, which were then sent as images.

This means that if the other person has the option to automatically save media to the device, even if the sender activates the delete function for everyone, the photos and videos will still be accessible in the gallery. Wanted by TechTudoWhatsApp explained that images on the iPhone camera roll are out of reach for the "erase for all" function, and this is not a glitch.
