Siri can help you with a bunch of things like find specific things on the Internet, schedule an alarm for you, remind you about that date tonight, or even let you view the photos that are in the Photos App. For that last part, you can command Apple’s artificial intelligence to even give you photos from a certain date or location. And what’s more is that the AI can give this to you without the added sass.
Searching for Photos Using Siri
Step 1 – Using Siri to search for photos on your Apple device is pretty much straightforward. First of all, you would have to fire up the artificial intelligence by pressing down on the Home button, or you can just call out to her by saying “Hey Siri,” that is if you have that feature enabled. Once she’s already listening, you will be able to start commanding her.
Step 2 – Instead of asking her on how you look today (which might get you that famous sass from the Apple AI), you can command her with something like “Show me photos from May 25.” If there are photos of the said date in the photos App, she will display them for you.
Step 3 – Aside from using Siri to search for photos with a specific date, you can also ask her to display images that are taken from a particular location, well, as long as you have the location services enabled when you were taking those photos. At the time of writing, the AI can only handle searching by city name, despite the photo being able to have a more specific location. Anyways, while she is listening, you can command her with something like “Show me photos from Los Angeles.” Once again, she will bring you over to the Photos App on your Apple device, and she will show you the photos that were taken from the specified location. She will also group them by date by default.
Step 4 – Finally, you can even become more specific with regards to your searches as you can command Siri to show you photos from a specific location and a particular date. For instance, you can tell her to show you photos “from Los Angeles on May 25.” Once again, she will bring you back to the Photos App and she will show you the photos that were taken from that specified location that are from the specified date.
