Sifting through hundreds of pictures when you’re looking for one in particular can be a nightmare. Though we still can’t tag our photos or add descriptions in the iOS Photos app, Apple has added a new feature that allows users to search their images by location, date, time, and even album name. This makes looking for images much easier, if you know when or where they were taken.

To search your photos, first go to Photos and tap the search icon.

Then enter the information corresponding to the photo you’re looking for into the search field. For instance, want to find all the photos you’ve taken at home? Type “home” and a collection of photos you’ve taken will pop up.

That's all there is to it!
