Adjust Date and Time of Photos and Videos on iPhone, iPad


You can change and adjust the date and time of photos and videos you've taken using your iPhone and iPad. Here's how you do it.

Photos App in iOS 15 and iPadOS Lets You Make Adjustments to Date & Time of Photos and Videos

We shoot loads and loads of photos and videos using our phones and tablets. And if you think you need to make some adjustments to the date and time of the photos and videos you've shot then you will be pleased to learn that you can do that straight on your iPhone and iPad using the Photos app. The process is super simple, and you don't even need any third-party app for it, just the latest version of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 installed.

Pick up your iPhone or iPad and follow through.


Step 1. Launch the Photos app from your Home Screen.

Step 2. Find the photo or video whose date and time you wish to adjust or change.

Step 3. Tap on the photo and video to bring it into view.

Step 4. Now swipe up on the photo / video to reveal a bunch of details.

Step 5. Tap on Adjust.

Step 6. Over here, you can change the date and time parameters. Once you've made the changes, tap on Adjust on the top right hand corner.

That's it. The new changes have been saved according to the latest date and time parameters you've set.

Since you get to see the original date and time therefore you can make precise adjustments whenever you need to.

Honestly, I have no idea why you would want to do such a thing on your iPhone or iPad unless you want to spoof something. But, there is just one case where this might come in handy - the photo or video was shoot using a device that didn't have a built-in GPS or the date and time was not set correctly. So, using this feature, you can make sure everything is in order and aligns perfectly with the rest of your photo and video library.

To wrap things up, you can make adjustments to the time and date parameters without having to install a third-party app, something which was absolutely necessary before iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 came along. Interestingly, you can actually use the above steps to adjust the location of your photos and videos, too.
