Undo And Redo Individual Edits

Apple photos application has managed to gain a lot of popularity and love with it’s iOS 16 version. But what changes or addition did Apple bring to this version? The most useful and notable additions include the ability to lock the photos with Touch ID or Face ID, remove the background from the photos, batch the photo editing, and redo or undo individual edits; all have together popularized the stock photos app. Mostly when you intend to edit those images as per your wish and freedom with better control, it is available to you in a super handy manner allowing you the flexibility to move back and forth.

Talking of the past, if you did not like any of the filters you used for the result at the time of editing any image, there was no option to go back and revert it to the original image. Neither of you had the privilege to clear all the edits that you have made to it. This means you had no other choice than to stay with some unwanted filters. Fortunately, this is not the case anymore. As of today, Apple provide you with the ability to redo or undo individual edits in your photos with the iOS 16 version on your iPad and iPhone.
