I can't replicate the issue. What could be the problem? Thanks a lot!

Answer

I was able to reproduce this today. To do this you need to:

  1. Open your app that is listening for changes
  2. Open the photos app, save a set of photos to your photo library from an iCloud shared album
  3. Go to the photos app, delete some of those photos
  4. Go again to the iCloud shared album and save again the some of the photos you deleted. You'll see this condition happen.

I found an updated code that seems to work better to handle the updating behavior here: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/Photos/Reference/PHPhotoLibraryChangeObserver_Protocol/

But it still doesn't handle this situation nor when the indexes to be deleted are bigger (i.e. Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', reason: 'attempt to delete item 9 from section 0 which only contains 9 items before the update'). I created this updated version of this code that deals with this better and hasn't crashed for me anymore so far.

func photoLibraryDidChange(changeInfo: PHChange!) {

    // Photos may call this method on a background queue;
    // switch to the main queue to update the UI.
    dispatch_async(dispatch_get_main_queue()) {


        // Check for changes to the list of assets (insertions, deletions, moves, or updates).
        if let collectionChanges = changeInfo.changeDetailsForFetchResult(self.assetsFetchResult) {

            // Get the new fetch result for future change tracking.
            self.assetsFetchResult = collectionChanges.fetchResultAfterChanges

            if collectionChanges.hasIncrementalChanges {

                // Get the changes as lists of index paths for updating the UI.
                var removedPaths: [NSIndexPath]?
                var insertedPaths: [NSIndexPath]?
                var changedPaths: [NSIndexPath]?
                if let removed = collectionChanges.removedIndexes {
                    removedPaths = self.indexPathsFromIndexSetWithSection(removed,section: 0)
                }
                if let inserted = collectionChanges.insertedIndexes {
                    insertedPaths = self.indexPathsFromIndexSetWithSection(inserted,section: 0)
                }
                if let changed = collectionChanges.changedIndexes {
                    changedPaths = self.indexPathsFromIndexSetWithSection(changed,section: 0)
                }
