I’m a huge picture and video person, so I was really happy to learn that Apple is finally catching up with
Google. They are still so far behind it’s not even funny, but it’s better than nothing. In iOS 10, you can
finally find photos by person, place or thing. If you go into Albums, you’ll see two new options: People and Places. It’s just much easier to find a picture when you can search by a face or by location. In addition, you can also tap on the search icon and person searches on anything else that might be in a picture like trees, beaches, cars, etc.
In the same vein, you can also add markup to your photos now directly from the Photos app. Previously, you could only do this using the Mail app. Tap on the photo in question, then tap on the small icon with three horizontal lines with circles on them (to the left of the Trash icon) and then tap on the circle with the three dots. The feature is quite hidden for some reason and frankly most people wouldn’t even know about it unless they read an article like this explaining where to look. Hopefully, it gets moved to a more prominent location in a future update because it’s a fun tool to use on your photos.
This is another one of those small features that prove to be useful. This tip is only for people who have
multiple Apple devices, including an Apple computer. In addition, you have to be running iOS 10 and macOS Sierra for this to work. Basically, the universal clipboard lets you copy something on one of your Apple devices and paste it on another. Also, some content works over LTE, but heavier content requires you to have Bluetooth or WiFi enabled on all the devices. Plus, all the devices have to use the same iCloud account.
