Access iPad Photos by Years and Location

New with Photos and iOS 7 comes the ability to view your photos in logical categories such as Years and Moments. These so-called smart groupings let you, for example, view all photos taken this year or all the photos from your summer vacation. Follow these steps to view your photos by when they were taken:

  1. Tap Photos on the Home screen to open it.

  2. Tap Photos at the bottom of the screen.

    The display of photos by year appears. Peruse you entire year of photos from this view.


  3. Tap the yearly photos and you see collections of photos by date.


  4. Tap a set of photo Moments displayed you can view the individual photos in that collection broken down day by day.

  5. Tap Collections in the top-right corner to display photos by location.

To go back to larger groupings, such as from a moment in a collection to the larger collection to the entire last year, just keep tapping the back button at the top-left of the screen (which will be named after the next collection up in the grouping hierarchy, such as Collections or Years).
