In iOS 13, Apple turns its ugly Photos app duckling into AI swan and video editor

The new Photos app in iOS 13, thankfully, addresses some of these issues. No, you still won't get your own folders to create and sync separately with iCloud, but you do get on-device machine learning to do it for you.
The app will now rampage through your entire library, merge duplicates, purge blurred snaps, separate receipt shots from vacation photos, and leave only your personal bests, highlighted in a beautiful presentation of the day, month or year. The videos and Live Photos get to autoplay while you scroll these highlight, and everything gets way better organized than if you painstakingly did it yourself, or so says Apple.
The Portrait Lighting edits can now get done in the Camera app directly, including aura movements to and fro for sharper or smoother facial expressions, and Apple throws a fresh High-Key Mono effect to go retro on your Portrait mode shots.
Photos app in iOS 13 gets to rich editing
The rich set of photo editing tools gets overhauled with new ways to make your snaps look better, from de-noising and saturation to one-tap autoenhance tool. Swiping with the new tools can increase or decrease the desired effect.
The best part? Most of these editing tools, young and old, will be available for videos now, too, straight from the Photos app, including rotating portrait clips into landscape, smart cropping and applying various filters.

So what. Everything doesn't need to be implement just because a mass of people may or may not be interest. The vast majority of people in the world aren't handicapped. Does that mean we shouldn't have things like priority seating and parking closer to entrances of businesses? Because that's how you sound. I bet at night before you sleep, instead of counting sheep; instead you sit and think of the most stupidest thing you can to reply back to us. Don't you? Are you related to Donald Trump?

So....because most people don't give a damn, that means you shouldn't have it? Well most people don't give a damn about benchmarks, ASP or sales; but it doesn't stop any of you from talking about it. See how that works?

Make as many app drawers as you want on iOS for years now! Native photo editing ha been on iOS for years as well (this is just a redesigned layout with added more features). Do you guys see a picture and blast your mouth off? Just because something was redesigned how it looks doesn’t mean it’s a new feature.

The dude that has written the article has little idea what Photos app (in iOS 12) can do and that it's just as good at managing the pictures as Google Photos. The difference between the 2 of them are the compression (I prefer AP, because of the quality, although, if I were to pay for GP, they would be on par), and some AI filters (in Apple, one needs to manually make edits) and features. They are both great options and what you have said is because of bias and not enough information.
