Why Do Duplicate Photos Have No Option To Delete On iPhone?

Why are so many of my photos duplicated on my iPhone X? I don't have "Keep original" selected. I can delete the original but not the duplicate. There is no delete option for the duplicates. The duplicates also don't show up in iPhoto on my macbook. I have no idea how to clean this up. Help me it's super annoying. I also don't have "delete after import" selected because I prefer to do that manually that way I can keep certain photos on my phone that I want to keep.

Hi there, the duplicate photos on your device might be the synced files if you enabled iTunes sync previously. To delete synced photos from your iPhone, you have to sync again with iTunes and deselect the synced albums in iTunes. Alternatively, you can enable iCloud Photos on your iPhone. iCloud Photos is not compatible with iTunes Photos Syncing and will erase all photos from the iPhone that have been synced with iTunes. Once the iTunes photo has been erased, you can disable iCloud Photos again on the iPhone.

Take care~
