Apple’s Photos app users will be familiar with the People album. This album attempts to identify faces in photos so you can label them with their correct names. You can then use this label to organize your library or as discoverable tags.
Many Photos app users know that Apple’s facial recognition software is not always accurate. As a result, there are occasions when a face can be misidentified and matched to another person.
This is addressed in iOS 15. The “People” album has improved recognition of the individuals in your photos. Apple also acknowledged that mistakes can still happen and introduced a new workflow to correct them. Here’s how it works.
- Open the Photos app on the iPhone or iPad, and choose the Albums tab.
- Tap People under “People & Places” to select a person.
- Tap the ellipsis symbol in the upper-right corner.
- Select Manage Tagged Images.
- Tap to undo any photos that are incorrectly identified as the person.
- Tap Tag More Photos to add photos untagged that include the person.
- To save your changes, tap Done after you are done.
Photos in iOS 15 offers many new features and improvements. Our dedicated Photos guide has more information.
