Swipe Up to Get More Photo Information

You likely already know that your photos are tagged with a date and location information. (Location services for the Camera app must be on) This information is partially displayed in the title bar at the top of the photo as displayed in the Photos app


Left: Title Bar with Summary
Swipe up for information on the right.

If you are every showing a photo and you can’t remember the details about that photo, swipe up on a photo in your Photos app will display its information about the photo. This includes:

  • Address
  • Map Location
  • Show Nearby Photos
  • People in Photo
  • Show Photos from this Day
  • Related Photos

For example, I love water and have hundreds of photos showing beaches, waterfront, lakes, rivers, ponds and waterfall. When I can’t remember the subject of the photo, it is so easy to swipe up to get more information including the location on a map and more.
