iOS 14 Hidden Photos And Album:

Apple has released iOS 14 for all supported smartphone and tablet models all across the globe.

The new mobile operating system fixes a rather odd feature:

A hidden album in which you could save photos is part of the stock Photos app for quite some time now.

However, up until the iOS 14, there was a slight oversight on Apple’s behalf which meant that you could always find and open photographs and images placed inside the album called Hidden with a few simple gestures and taps. So, contrary to what common sense would dictate, there wasn’t much privacy to boast about, when taking into account the original concept or at least not in a way the company intended to apply it.

Thankfully, this issue is a thing of the past now. Here is how you can hide photos on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and hide/unhide Hidden Album in settings.

Now back to the reminder we mentioned above. While the hidden album will be out of the view inside the Photos app, applications will still have access to it and the images contained within it when using the photo picker. So keep this important aspect in mind when you put photos into the album. Images in the Hidden album are invisible until they aren’t but then again they’re sometimes anyway.
