    as the title says, on my Android phone the photos are named as a date format but on iOS they are name as IMG_001

    Is there a way to make the stock camera app name the files as per the date?

    If you transfer you photos to a Mac you can setup Automater to handle it

    If you use Dropbox sync I believe it will replace uploaded file names with timestamps. But I don't recommend it over iCloud Photo.

    Yeah, bummer.

    Guessing Apple is adhering to the standard for image file naming, even though the pictures are not on an SD card.
