Also, you can find the photo on your device using both the methods.

Here I will provide you complete guide to search photos with the help of Siri Using Date or using location or both.

How to search Photos with Siri using Date?

Any of the photos that you have taken in your iOS device will be stored with the date on which that photo was clicked and also at what time the photo was clicked. If you are searching for a particular photo of a particular date, then Siri will help you locate your photo on the device easily.

For Siri to find a photo for you, First of all, make sure that it is enabled on your device. If not, you can enable Siri in the Settings App on your device.

Steps to use Siri to search your photos by date or location are as follows:
  1. Firstly, of all, Press the Home Button and then Speak "Hey Siri" then Siri will listen to whatever you speak.
  2. After that, you say the month name of which you want the photos. Like "Show me the photos from September".
    Show me photos from September
    Show me photos from September

After this, Siri searches for the photos and if she finds it, She will display all the photos from June.

One can also be more specific and can search the photos by specifying a particular date like 'June 30' or one can also specify a particular year.

How to search Photos with Siri using Location?

To search the photos with the help of Siri based on the location on your device, location services should be enabled on your device. If yes, then all the photos taken from your iOS device will be automatically stamped with the place you have taken the photo.

Steps to search Photo are as follows:

  1. First of all Tap to your Home Button and then say "Hey Siri." Then Siri will listen to your words.
  2. After that, speak the name of the place of which you are searching the photos. Suppose "Show me Photos from Huntsville."
