How to Use Siri to Search Photos by Time or Location

How to Use Siri to Search Photos by Time or Location
Siri, you've changed! With the update to iOS 9, Siri's been supercharged, and one of the personal assistant's new skills is the ability to search Photos by the time or place they were taken. 

To search, pick the date or general time or location of the photos you want to find and then activate Siri by pressing and holding the Home button. 

Next, say something like, "Show me photos from Myrtle Beach last December."

The photos with matching time and location stamps will appear, divided by day.
