How to Use Siri to Search for Objects in Photos

  • Activate Siri by pressing and holding the Home button. Or say, "Hey Siri," if you have that function enabled.

  • Tell Siri something along the lines of, “Siri search Photos for [Object].” In this case, the objects we’re looking for are trees.

  • Unlock your phone (if it was locked).

  • Siri will show you all the pictures it found of trees from your Camera Roll.
