YOUR iPhone photos are always at your fingertips – but finding your favourite snaps can be tricky.
Thankfully, a TikTok fan has showcased a quick and easy way to organise your images so they’re easier to find when you need them.
In a recent video posted to her 560,000 followers, Megan James expressed her surprise that you can add captions to pictures in the Photos app.
“If I was the last person to figure this out, I’m gonna lose it,” said Megan, who posts under the username @megan_a_james.
To add a caption, open your Photos app and tap on the image you want to add to.
Swipe up to show information such as the time and date the photo was taken, as well as its location. Add the caption you want in the caption text box.
Adding captions to your photos on iPhone and iPad helps you organise them on all of your Apple devices.
They make the search function more useful and let you add context to your most beloved snaps.
Once you add a caption to an image, you can search for the keywords later using the search function in the Photos app.
For instance, you might label every photo snapped in your house “home” so you can easily bring up snaps from your humble abode.
You can filter further by adding dates, people, and other keywords.
Apple uses artificial intelligence to add information such as dates and locations to images.
However, it’s not always accurate, and sticking in your own labels is a more reliable way of organising them.
You can then search for those keywords in the Photos app.
How to search Photos on your iPhone
Open the Photos iOS app and tap the big Search button in the bottom right-hand corner – the one with the magnifying glass logo.
Then at the top, use the search bar to type in something you’re looking for.
You can search for a type of object or scene, a place or time, or even a person’s name (if they’re assigned in your Photos app).
And don’t start to panic that Apple is snooping on your photos.
All of the processing to make this work happens on your iPhone.
So your image data isn’t being sent up to Apple’s cloud servers to be analysed for the search function.
“When you search your photos, all of the face recognition and scene and object detection are done completely on your device,” said Apple.
“Apple harnesses machine learning to enhance your experience – and your privacy.
“We’ve used it to enable image and scene recognition in Photos, and more, without requiring your data to leave your device.”
