Adding Captions to Your Images on Your iPhone and iPad2 min read

Adding captions to your images on your iPhone or iPad could not be easier.

Captioned photos are also searchable by the caption, which makes this a handy feature.

Your device will need to be using iOS 14 or iOS 15, which is the latest operating system before you can add captions to your photos on your iPad or iPhone. If you need help with updating your device, read this post. Once you have iOS 14 or 15, it’s very easy to add captions to your photos.

[00:00:00] Hi, this is Ian Mackenzie from Tech Confidence. In this video, I’m going to show you how you can add captions to your photos. So I’ve got a photo here I’ve taken of the Nambucca river sometime ago, and all I have to do a swipe up and you’ll notice it shows where the picture was taken, and it also gives us the option to add a caption. So right here I could put River. You come up to the top right-hand side here and just click done.

Now my picture is captioned. And the good thing about that is when you search for images, you’ll actually be able to search for the Nambucca river and that will be pulled up in the search.

And of course, when you’re finished, just pull it back down, and it’s done. To reveal it again, just pull back up and if you want to change it, just tap on it and change it.

That’s all there is to it. Okay, and this is only available on iOS 14 , so you need to update your phones to the latest Apple software, which is now iOS 14.

Click the link above to the post on updating your iPhone or iPad or view other videos on my YouTube channel that go into how to do that.

Enjoy captioning your photos. Thanks for watching.
