If you’ve ever wanted to see the EXIF data for a photo right on your iPhone Photos app, you’ll want to install the iOS 15 update right away.
With iOS 15, each image in the Photos app has a new “Info” button available that shows the image format, the details of the camera used to capture it, and the location where it was taken.
Until now, there was no way to view this information directly in the hPhotos app on iPhone, so you would have to use either a third-party app, a shortcut, or another device to view it.
This interface can be used to add captions and to see the location where a photo was taken, plus there is an option to adjust metadata, such as the date it was taken.
Some images will also have a spark next to the Info button, which means there is information you can see in Lookup mode. On a picture of a flower, for example, the Photos app can compare it with other flower pictures on the web, which provides a possible identification for the type of flower. In the screenshot below, this is really an accurate assessment of the type of flower in the image.
There is also a new option to press the “Live” button for any Live image to automatically make it a Loop, Bounce or Long Exposure.
