Album “People” in iPhone: how it works

Apple has pushed the Photos app powerfully in iOS 15 with a host of useful features. Despite the fact that the iPhone photo gallery was overloaded with not the most useful functions, face recognition in photos iOS 15 has improved markedly: pictures get into albums, and people’s cards are almost never duplicated. Even if the algorithms incorrectly identify faces, it can be easily corrected and also removed from unwanted people from photo collections. Today we will tell you about how face recognition works in iPhone photos, how to manage it and search people by photos в iPhone.

How the People album works on the iPhone

What does the “People” album mean in iPhone?

This album is different from a regular photo folder that you create yourself. The Photos application looks at your pictures and recognizes the faces of the people in the pictures, combining them into a separate album. Each person has their own card, which makes it easy to view all the pictures where this person is. It’s much easier than searching your entire library for snapshots.

Album “People” allows you not only to browse pictures, but also to search for them by name

You can watch the slideshow “Memories” with the music you like best. And the ability to personalize allows you to remove unwanted people from collections. Sometimes algorithms cannot recognize people because of the angle or simply because there are no faces in the photo. What to do?

How to add a photo to the People album

If the picture for some reason was not recognized by the application, you can add to album “People” manually.

  • Select the image you want to add and open it.
  • Click the “i” icon, then the small icon with a question mark.
