The most reliable way to change the date on your
photos on your iPhone is in the Photos app on a
Mac. You’ll need to enable iCloud Photo Library on
both your iPhone and your Mac. Within the Photos
app on your computer, hold down the Shift key and
click on all the photos whose dates you want to
change. Next, go to Image and click Adjust Date
and Time. This will allow you to change the dates for
all the photos at once. If you don’t have a Mac,the
iPhone app Pixelgarde (free) can change the date
stamp right on your phone.
If I’m using GPS on my iPhone and I want
to use another app, will GPS continue to
work? Also, once Apple releases the new
iPhone in the fall, I plan to upgrade. Can the
old iPhone 6 continue to use GPS if it no
longer has a data plan?
Using another app does not interfere with GPS
accuracy. You also don’t need a data plan as long
as your phone has a GPS chip (it does) and you are
using a fitness tracking app that allows you to load
your info over Wi-Fi before heading out on your
walks. Even some navigation apps let you preload
maps over Wi-Fi and then use them when you’re
offline. If this doesn’t meet your needs, you should
find out if your carrier will let you do some kind of
low-cost, data-only plan.
How can I change the date of multiple
photos at once on my iPhone? I took the
photos on a camera that had the date set
to 2021 instead of the current date.
How do I copy pictures I’ve received in a
text and attach them in an email?
Dear Copy That,
The easiest way to copy or save a picture from a text
is by long pressing the photo (just rest your finger
on the photo). From the menu that pops up, choose
either Copy or Save (save if you want to keep the
image in your Photos app).
To email the picture, you’ll need to either paste the
image you copied or attach the image you saved.
Start by long pressing in the body of the email. A
black menu will pop up. Choose Paste if you copied
the image. If you saved the photo, tap the arrow
on the right and choose Insert Photo or Video and
choose the image in Photos.
