Knowing how to edit photo metadata in iOS 15 will definitely help. After all, when you take a photo on your iPhone, descriptive information called metadata is also collected and stored with it and it is good to have more control over the information.
In the case of iOS, metadata lets you determine when and even where an image was taken, although it also includes details about the iPhone model you used, as well as lens information. , file size, format and resolution.
This data is stored in the exchangeable image file format and now, thanks to iOS 15 (and iPadOS 15), it is possible to modify some of it without having to install any apps. By changing the date, time, and location, you can correct errors or make shared images more private. After all, you might not always want to show exactly when and where a photo was taken.
Here we take a look at how it’s done, but first you need to upgrade your device to iOS 15; we have a separate guide on how to download iOS 15 if you don’t know what to do.
These steps work for photos you’ve taken with your own device (whether it’s an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad) or photos you’ve imported.
1. Assuming you have updated your iPhone to iOS 15, launch the Photos app so select image you want to make changes.
2. Then either press the “i” icon, which you will find at the bottom of the screen, or swipe up on the image.
3. You will see the date and time the image was originally taken. To start editing metadata, tap “Adjust”.
4. Now you can start change date. If the new date falls in the same month as the one currently displayed on the screen, all you need to do is tap the day you want to change it.
TO change month and year, you can use the left and right arrows Where swipe left and right on the calendar himself. You can also tap the arrow next to the currently displayed month / year and use the carousel to help you quickly find the date you want.
5. You may also want change the hour. Only tap the original time displayed in the gray area and slide up and down on the carousel to find the time you want.
6. You can also change the time zone. Tap the current time zone and enter another place in the search bar. Then tap the closest match in the results list.
7. When you are happy with your changes, press “Adjust” in the upper right corner.
8. If you change your mind, you can repeat all of these steps to make a change. You will find an option to press “Restore” in the upper right corner to revert to the original metadata.
1. In iOS 15, launch the Photos app and select image you want to make changes to
2. You should see a map peeking out from the bottom of the screen. Swipe up to see the map and tap Adjust. If you don’t see a map, chances are you’ve turned off location services for the Camera app. Check out the instructions below to find out how to change this.
3. If you prefer to hide the place where the image was taken, tap No location. Otherwise, search for a new location in the search bar at the top of the screen. Suggestions will be made by Apple Maps. Tap a new location and it will automatically be included in your photo’s metadata.
1. Location metadata will only be included with a photo if you allow the Camera app to access your location. To verify, open the Settings app in iOS and press “Confidentiality”.
2. First of all, tap on “Location services” and make sure it’s turned on. Then scroll down the screen and press “Camera”.
3. Select “Using the app”. You can also use toggle switch to indicate if you want your precise location to be used. Disabling it will only use your approximate location.
1. If you have a bunch of photos you want to edit – maybe all related to a single event – then launch the Photos app and press “Select”. You can now tap on any photos you want to make metadata changes on.
2. Now, press the “Share” button at the bottom of the screen and swipe up.
3. That is press “Adjust date and time” or press “Adjust location”. Both work the same way described in the sections above.
