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.

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.

The second major change added a mature rating to the app, requiring that users installing the app are 17 or older.

How to Send Unlimited iPhone Photos via Email

Sharing photos from your iOS device over email is great, until you run into the built-in limitation that prevents selecting over 5 photos. This means that if you have a large number of photos to send via email, the iPhone will force you to send them in several emails with 5 attachments each.

Thanks to developer Mohamed Alaoui Mrani, iOS users can download Instamail Photos from the App Store and send unlimited photos in one message. The app is currently on sale, priced at $0.99 for a limited time. Of course, you can't go sending too many photos in a single email, because most service providers limit the size of email messages.
