Looking to disable/remove ⓘ symbol in photos. I keep mistakenly hitting it. It’s entirely useless IMO.

How?

The data in there is super important. Develop a muscle memory to NOT hit it.

Users interested in the shooting details of an image. As a photographer, I'm interested. I previously used a 3rd party app - ViewExif; this is simpler.
If I shot the image- I should have a fairly good idea of the details. Should I need to go back and re-fresh my memory, it should be placed out of sight, and the user should look to find the button instead of the button being RIGHT THERE.

If I have a lot of images, there is no way I would recall at some later time f-stop, ISO, shutter speed for each individually and I doubt anyone else would, either. It's there and you'll just have to live with it or use another app - e.g., HashPhotos - for interacting with the Photos library.

I don't know. Maybe this complaint can spark interest and motivation to change it for someone who has the reach and ability to do so.
Until then, I will suffer.

I'll try. But this is easier in case there are any "secret shoppers" around.
I’m convinced that’s not how it works. ? I know quite a lot people who pestered Apple in the past about getting to access the info implemented. ?

I too find the "info" icon way too sensitive. It seems to open for nearly every photo I touch especially if I'm going through and reviewing several photos. It's a pain. Can it be either less sensitive or can be turned off and on in Photos. Thanks.

I'm glad this nuisance fossil can be reached.

What I've found helpful: To abandon things that frustrate and cause annoyance, and to move on to other things that do not. Outside of the frustratr, of course.
