All-new Photos tab
The all-new Photos tab lets you browse your photo library with different levels of curation, so it’s easy to find, relive and share your photos and videos. You can view everything in All Photos, focus on your unique photos in Days, relive your significant moments in Months or rediscover your highlights in Years.
Auto-playing Live Photos and videos
Throughout the Photos tab, muted Live Photos and videos begin playing as you scroll, bringing your photo library to life.
Smart photo previews
In Days, Months and Years, photo previews are larger to help you distinguish between shots. Photos uses intelligence to find the best part of your photo in photo previews, which means you get to see the uncropped version of your photo when you tap to view it.
Animations and transitions keep your place in the Photos tab, so you can switch between views — like Days and All Photos — without losing your place.
Removes similar shots and clutter
Duplicate photos, screenshots, whiteboard photos, documents and receipts are identified and hidden, so you see only your best shots.
Months presents your photos by events, so you can rediscover the moments that matter most.
The Photos tab displays the name of the location, holiday or concert performer to provide helpful context for your significant events.
On this Day
Years is contextual, so it shows you photos taken on or around today’s date in past years.
If you have birthdays assigned to people in your People album, the Photos tab will highlight your photos of them on their birthday.
Zoom in and zoom out
View your library in All Photos however you’d like. Zoom in for a closer look, or zoom out to quickly scan through your library and see all your shots at once.
Screen recordings smart album
All your new screen recordings are now in one place.
You can combine multiple search terms — like “beach” and “selfies” — without tapping each word in Search.
Music for Memories
Soundtracks for Memory movies are selected based on what you listen to in the Apple Music app.
Extended Live Photos playback
When you press and hold to play a Live Photo, Photos will automatically extend the video when you have Live Photos taken within 1.5 seconds of each other.
As you apply an edit, each adjustment displays its intensity, so you can see at a glance which effects have been increased or decreased.
Individually review each effect
Tap each effect icon to see what your photo looked like before and after the effect was applied.
Control the intensity of any filter, like Vivid or Noir, to fine-tune your look.
Enhance now lets you control the intensity of your automatic adjustments. As you increase or decrease Enhance, you’ll see other adjustments — including Exposure, Brilliance, Highlights, Shadows, Contrast, Brightness, Black Point, Saturation and Vibrance — intelligently change with it.
Video editing support
Adjustments, filters and crop support video editing, so you can rotate, increase exposure or even apply filters to your videos. Video editing supports all video formats captured on iPhone, including 4K video at 60 fps and 1080p slow-motion video at 240 fps.1
Nondestructive video edits
Video edits are now nondestructive, so you can remove an effect like a filter or undo a trim to return to your original video.
Boost muted colours to make your photo richer without affecting skin tones and saturated colours.
Balance the warmth of an image by adjusting temperature (blue to yellow) and tint (green to magenta).
Change photos by making edges crisper and better defined.
Increase image clarity by adjusting the definition slider.
Reduce or eliminate noise such as graininess or speckles in photos.
Add shading to the edges of your photo to highlight a powerful moment using Strength, Radius and Falloff.
Updates to auto adjustments
Straighten, crop and adjust the perspective of your photos automatically.
You can pinch to zoom while editing to review your changes on a specific area of your photo.
