How to Change the Name of an Album on iPhone and iPad

Maybe naming that album “Picnic” wasn’t really a good idea? There are many times when an album begins to contain pictures that the name of the album doesn’t describe well. In those cases, it’s best to change album name on your iPhone accordingly so that you can quickly access your particular memories.

One thing you need to know that you can’t change the name of the default albums like Camera Roll, Screenshots, People, Recently Deleted, Live Photos, My Photo Stream, Animated, Selfies, Videos, and Places. You will be able to rename only custom folders—either the ones which have been automatically generated based on a particular app like Instagram or the ones you have made.
