iOS 9 beta 3 adds new albums to Photos app


iPhone photographers will gain minor improvements to the camera roll with the iOS 9 update coming this fall.

The first addition pulls any iPhone screenshots into a separate folder, making it easy to browse or delete these captures independently from other photos.

All iPhones can be used to take screenshots with a simple button press combination detailed here.
