Looking for a specific photo/video on your iPhone? Apple video shows you the easiest way to find it

Need to find a specific photo that you took with your Apple iPhone? That could be a daunting task depending on how often you used your iOS flavored handset to snap a picture. You could end up scrolling through hundreds of photographs looking for a needle in a haystack. There is a better solution. Apple released a video tutorial yesterday showing iPhone users how they can search for a specific picture taken by the device.

This is a quick two step process that starts with you opening the Photos app and tapping on search. That leaves just one additional step. Search for a person's name, or a thing. For example, in the video, Apple searches for photos containing sunglasses, and does another search for images that include fruit. This process will also turn up videos that include whatever it is you're searching for.

Apple has put up a page called How to Shoot on iPhone that gives out tips and helpful hints on a variety of photography related topics. For example, if you need to edit a selfie shot in Portrait mode, or want to record in Slo-mo, or have any other questions regarding shooting photos or videos with your iPhone, click right here.

Meh, I use Google photos on my iPhone, it's fast and unlimited storage (on the expense of selling your soul to Google...)
