How to Find Photos with Siri on your iPhone/iPad

Oyetoke Tobi - Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Did you know that instead of searching for photos by typing in places or dates, you can easily find photos by telling Siri where and when you want it to look for?

With Siri, you can combine the places and times and it will find photos anywhere and anytime. There are many methods you can use to find photos with Siri.

To cut the long story short, finding photos with Siri is very easy to carry out, all you have to do is to say the right command voice. So here's how to do just that

How to find photos with Siri based on time


By default, any photo you capture with your iPhone or iPad is automatically stamped with the date and time. So in case you know the date and time you took the photos you are looking for, Siri should be able to help you find them.

Just press and hold the home button to open Siri, or simply say "Hey, Siri" if your device support its. Then say something like "Show me photos from September."



If you are using the time to find photos with Siri, you can find photos appropriately by being more specific like saying a precise date, for example "Show me pictures from September 17th," or you can even add the year to it.

How to find photos with Siri based on location


Every photo taken on your iPhone or iPad is automatically stamped with the location, unless you've turned off your location services. That is if you know the location you took those photos, you can ask Siri to find them for you.

As usual just press and hold down the home button to open Siri, or simply say "Hey, Siri" if your device support it. Then say something like "Show me photos from New York."

Like I said, you can be as precise or as broad as you want. You can ask Siri base on where, the time and date you took those nice photos of yours

Actually it's worth saying that you can combine these methods to get better search results from Siri. 

Let's say you went to Rome and trying to show your friends pictures from the most recent trip, you can just say something like "Show me photos from Rome in May." And also you can use Siri to search for photos in folders such as asking for "Show me my selfies from November" will find the Selfies folder where your selfies are automatically stored.
