Photo Scrubbing: Quick Way to Find Images in iOS 9 on iPhone/iPad

Photos app in iOS 9 helps you search your choice of images from a number of photos stored in different albums. Use the quick scrub bar below a selected photo and find your favorite picture.

Photos are taken for several reasons; some want to create lasting memories, some want to satiate their own hunger to be photographed, and some people simply want to share the joy.

There could be any reason for you to capture photographs, but at the end of the day, your iPhone memory receives hundreds or perhaps thousands of pictures. But how can you manage so many photos, especially when you want to walk down that memory lane? Finding your special memory from the thousand photos is like finding a needle in a haystack.
