How to Undo/Redo Individual Edits in Photos in iOS 16 on iPhone and iPad

Apple Photos app has received a lot of love in iOS 16. The notable additions like the ability to lock photos with Face ID/Touch ID, remove background from photos, batch photo editing, and undo/redo individual edits have further enriched the stock photos app. Especially when you want to edit images with the desired freedom and better control, it comes in super handy to have the flexibility to go back and forth. Earlier, if you ever didn’t like any filter or the end result while editing an image, you had no other option but to revert the image to the original, wiping out all the neat edits you had done in between. Damn it! That was incredibly frustrating, to say the least. Thankfully, that is no longer the case today! Here’s how you can undo/redo individual edits in Photos in iOS 16 on iPhone and iPad.

Undo/Redo Individual Edits in Photos in iOS 16/iPadOS 16 on iPhone and iPad

Going back and forth with individual edits is as straightforward as tapping on the touchscreen.

Step 1. To get started, open the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 2. Now, head over to the image you want to edit and select it.

Step 3. Next, tap on the Edit button at the upper right corner of the screen.

Step 4. At any point in the photo editing process, you want to go back to the previous edit to make any changes, just tap on the Undo icon that appears in the top left corner of the screen. Since the Photos allows you to revert each effect one by one, all the way to the original image, you can edit your photo with enhanced control.

Step 5. Wondering how to redo any edits? Simply, tap on the Redo icon at the top left (on the right side of the undo icon) corner of the screen to re-apply the effect. And that’s all there is to it!
