You Probably Didn't Know This iPhone Photo Search Hack
Searching for a specific image in your iPhone’s vast photo library can be frustrating, but with the help from a little known Apple feature, you could make it easier. Through Live Text, you can manually search through your photos by looking for a particular subject or even by text that might appear in the image.
Searching by Subject
Being able to search through your "Photos" app by subject isn't a brand new feature, but it's one you might have overlooked. You can do this by simply tapping the Search button at the bottom-right of the screen in the “Photos” app, then typing in the subject you want to look for. So, for example, a search for "cat" should pull up your cat photos.
Searching by Text
If you're looking for specific words in your photos, you'll need to pull up System Search on your iPhone by swiping down from the middle of the Home screen. You'll then need to type in the word you're looking for and scroll down to the Photos From Apps results section. Results can vary, but the function should improve as Apple continues to develop Live Text.
