iOS 8 Users Can Recover Deleted Photos on Their iPhone

A few weeks have passed since Apple's iOS 8 preview giving developers plenty of time to dig around and discover new features in the beta. Several sources have found a "Recently Deleted” album in the Camera app. The folder allows users to access their deleted photos and recover images or videos they accidentally deleted.

The ability to hide individual photos was also previously discovered in the Photos app. Users can now tap and hold a thumbnail or image to bring up the "Hide Photo" option. So far you can only keep images hidden from the Moments, Collections and Years albums.

Most of the changes Apple makes to its Photos app revolves around sharing, not hiding, your images from family and friends, but now there is a new "Hide Photo" option in iOS 8. The new photo hiding feature was discovered in the iOS 8 beta by an iDownloadblog reader.

To hide a photo in your photos app, simply tap and hold the thumbnail of the image you want to hide then tap "Hide" and "Hide Photo" to confirm. The photo will now be hidden from Moments, Collections and Years but still available in Albums. This is not very helpful if you want to keep really personal photos hidden from people thumbing through your Photos app, but I guess it is a start. There is also a slight chance that the feature could be tweaked by Apple before the final version of iOS 8 is released to the public.
