Searching for a particular image among thousands of images is a tedious task. While macOS already has the option to add captions to photos for a quick search, iOS lacked this nifty tool until the arrival of iOS 14. So no more jumping from one end of the photo library to the other just to select a specific photo or video! Let me show you how you can add captions to photos and videos in iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 for quick finding.
How to Add Captions to Photos and Videos on iPhone and iPad
Photos’ captions feature iCloud Photo Library to sync captions between iDevices, including Mac. Therefore, if you have iCloud Photo Library enabled on your iOS device, the captions will sync across your devices connected to the same iCloud account. In addition, you can edit subtitles and even remove those that are no longer needed.

So this is the simple way to use subtitles in iOS 14. This is quite helpful and works effectively in finding an image. While I’m happy with this feature, I would appreciate it if Apple also added the option to edit the metadata of images.
iOS 14 brought a few nice improvements to the Photos apps, including allowing an app to access only certain images, and filters to view images by organized, favorites, and more. Apart from improving Photos, iOS 14 has also improved Messages, Shortcuts and Voice Memos. By the way, what do you think of these improvements? Shoot in the comments section below.
