    iPhone Camera Apps - how many do you have?

    Photos app makes RAW files blurry after editing

    I've done a bit of online research and it seems like this problem has lingered in some iteration of iPhoto/Photos for over a decade, going back to 2008. For recently imported RAW files, the photos will show up fine at first, but after editing through Photos, they will be blurry until I click...

    I recently uploaded a number of photos and videos from my Mac to iCloud. These files were not in my Photos app on my Mac but rather saved as files. When I uploaded the videos to iCloud, they were saved as photos. I accidentally deleted the original files. Is there anything I can do? Has the...

    All Devices iOS's Photos' "People" Facial Recognition UI is absolutely terrible and frustrating.
