You can even select several photos and edit their information simultaneously.

You can walk back on edits as the original image is available even after editing. You can adjust the lighting in a photo and add emojis and stickers. The sharing menu has received a more straightforward design. You can even edit its layout and place the most-used sharing options at the front and center.
