How to Enable Unlimited Photo Zooming on iPhone or iPad

Thanks to a weird iOS bug, you can enable unlimited photo zooming on your iOS device.

Over the last few years, Apple’s stock Photos app has seen some exciting improvements. A number of cool features like the option to let you edit your favorite pics elegantly have vastly enhanced the quality of this app. However, there are still quite a lot of areas where the Photos app has to get better in order to fulfill everyone’s wish.

For a long time, I had really been waiting for a feature to let me zoom any pic unlimitedly using the pinch-zoom gesture on my iOS device. Fortunately, my long wish has come to be true. Thanks to a weird bug discovered by iDownloadBlog reader Miguel C. you can enable the stock Photos app to let you zoom any image unlimitedly. Here is how it works:

tap on DoneThat’s all!

Now, you can zoom this particular photo to your heart’s liking. But, if you exit this photo or switch to another one, this functionality will stop working.

I wish Apple implements this functionality in iOS 10. It would indeed be a nice add-on in the next-gen iOS ecosystem.
