Mastering iOS: Finding handwritten images in Photos.
The search function of the iOS Photos app is amazing. Try searching dog and you’ll find most of your photos of dogs. How does it do it? It just knows. In addition to facial recognition, Photos’ search has deep object recognition. One of the most useful functions is recognizing handwriting. On iPhone, I’ll commonly handwrite a note in the Memopad 2 app on iPhone and search makes these easy to find on iPad as well.
- Type Hand in the search field.
- Tap Handwriting.
- Tap See All.
This will give you all the handwritten notes saved to Photos and exclude notes with text that just typed.
