Metadata : Here’s how to edit photo metadata in iOS 15 so you can change the date, time and place in photos
Being able to edit image metadata on iOS 15 will definitely help you.
By setting the date, time, and location, you can correct any errors or make any shared photos more private.
Here we look at how to do it, but you should upgrade your device to iOS 15 first; we have a different guide on how to download iOS 15 if you are not sure what to do.
These steps apply to photos you take with your device (whether iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad) or the ones you imported.
How to edit image metadata in iOS 15: Change date and time
- If you think you have updated your iPhone to iOS 15, launch the Photos app and select the photo you want to make a change to.
- Next, tap the “i” icon, which you will find at the bottom of the screen, or swipe the image.
- To start changing metadata, tap “Fix”.
- You can now start changing the date. If the new date is within the same month as the current one displayed on the screen, simply tap the date you want to change it.
To change the month and year, you can use the left and right arrows or swipe left and right on the calendar itself. You can also tap the arrow next to the current month / year and then use the carousel to help you quickly find the day you want.
- You may also want to change the time. Just tap the first time shown in the gray box and swipe up and down on the carousel to find the time you want.
- You can also change the time zone. Tap a current location and enter a different location in the search bar. Then tap the game closest to the results list.
- When you are satisfied with your change, tap “Fix”.
- If you change your mind, you can repeat all these steps to make a change. You will find an option to tap “Restore” in the top right corner to return to the original metadata.
