Here’s how easy you can find the specific photos or videos you would like to see.

1) On your iPhone, open Photos app.

2) Navigate to Search tab.

3) Under the Search screen, tap on the Search bar and key in items, places or any attributes you would like to search for (E.g.: cheese, car, iPhone, spring, dining, New York). Alternatively, below the search bar, you can also search by People, Moments, Places and Categories – which iOS has generated for you.

Search specific Photos and Videos easily on iPhone – using the Search tab and Search bar. I can even find photos taken from my old iPhone 4 back in the days!

Do you know you can even search for specific item, such as “iPhone 13” – on the search bar. It will return you all photos taken from your iPhone 13. If you have photos or videos taken using your old iPhone – such as iPhone 7, you can also search “iPhone 7” on the search bar and it will return you all photos taken from iPhone 7.
