You can easily organize and find pictures with your friends and family with the Photos app. Here ‘s how you can find people and faces in the Photos app on your iPhone.

Anytime you want to find a specific picture of your friend or family, all you need to do is go to the People Album. There you can find their name and the pictures on them.
