Here’s a little Photos app detail that I hadn’t noticed until I’d loaded my iPad with enough photos that I actually *had* to use the search function to find what I was looking for. When you search for a set of photos — by describing an album name, place, or date — the Photos app will show a single thumbnail to represent each search result it displays. Tapping on a single set of search results will load up a filtered view that shows only the relevant pictures. However, if you swipe right on the search results, you’ll see that you can actually “peek” into more of the results without having to tap on any of them. It’s a nice easy way to quickly sample more of the results without having to reset your search.
This isn’t any sort of game-changing feature, and I actually think it’s more useful on the iPhone with its limited screen real estate, but it’s a great example of the delightful little details that Apple includes in iOS. I like that some things are included not because they add incredible utility, but simply because they’re plain fun to discover and use.
