051 - Photos Smart Search

Share this Tip

Photos on your iOS device and Mac is smarter than you think.

A few years ago Apple added machine learning in Photos. They trained their algorithms against a huge generic photo library to enable it to identify common objects.

When you open search on Photos you’ll see there’s already a set of photo categories that has been identified from your photo collection.

You can easily search for common objects like say, dog.

Or coffee.

Or sailing.

It makes it much easier sometimes to search for an item, rather than remembering the date or place.
