New in iOS 8: You can recover accidentally deleted Photos

iOS 8 Photos

Apple introduced some major improvements to the Photos app in iOS 8 with the new iCloud Library and number of new editing tools.

The Photos app in iOS 8 also includes two new options namely ‘Recently Added’ and ‘Recently Deleted’ under Albums.

The ‘Recently Deleted’ album as the name suggests seems to temporarily contains photos that have been deleted recently.

You have an option to recover the deleted photo in case you’ve deleted it accidentally. It displays the date and time the photo was taken.

I’m assuming that photos will be automatically cleared from this album after sometime, though it is not clear for how long. I’m also told that there is no option available in Settings to disable it.

Another minor, but nice improvement in iOS 8. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Thanks randomMan for the tip, and Cody for the screenshots.
