iOS 14 Will Allow Users To Caption Photos And Videos For Easier Search
Apple might have announced iOS 14 during its WWDC opening keynote on Monday, but that doesn’t mean that we were told everything that we can look forward to when the update lands later this year. We’re still hearing more and more about what the update has to offer, including a new ability to add comments to photos and videos.
Apart from giving users a handy place to make notes about their photos and videos, comments will also allow users to search for them with more ease.
According to those who have been testing the developer beta of iOS 14, the Camera app now offers up a new option to “Add a Caption” when a photo or video is taken. These comments can then be seen in the metadata of the content captured within the Photos app.
Apple has offered a similar feature in the Photos app on the Mac for some considerable time now and it’s good to see it finally making the switch to the iPhone and, of course, the iPad as well.
We haven’t yet heard but we wonder whether the comments feature has also been reworked in Photos in macOS 11 Big Sur. Shout out in the comments if you’re running that particular developer beta!
