How to rename photos and album on iPhone

How to rename photos and album on iPhone is a question my friend asked me recently and the idea to write this post came from there.

Maybe naming that album “Wife” wasn’t really a good idea? There are many occasions when an album begins to contain images that the album name does not describe well. You may be saving your sister-in-law’s photos in the album and this may be quite harmful to your health (I am joking). ​

In those cases, it is better to rename the album on your iPhone accordingly so that you can quickly access your particular memories.

One thing you should know is that you cannot rename the default albums like Camera Roll, Screenshots, People, Recently Deleted, Live Photos, My Photo Stream, Animated, Selfies, Videos, and Places. You will only be able to rename custom folders, either the ones that have been auto-generated based on a particular app like Instagram or the ones you’ve created.
