It’s been quite a while since the iPhone Photos app allows you to make certain adjustments and editions in the photos. Thanks to these features it is not necessary to have specialized apps installed on the smartphone and with the arrival of iOS 13 even less since Apple has decided to integrate many more editing tools.
In addition to the advantage of having fewer apps installed on the device, this offers another advantage: it is possible to return to the original of a photo even if you have made a lot of edits.
It is true that other photo editing apps also allow you to do this, but the fact that it is integrated directly into iOS allows these images to be synchronized through iCloud. This reduces the chances of losing them in the event of a disaster since you will always have an online backup. In addition, if you use the extensions you can edit with other applications and go back from a single place in a very comfortable way.
It does not matter if you have made cuts, applied filters, adjusted the colors, the lights, rotated an image, etc, etc … With a single action, you can turn back all those touches and return to the original photo.
How to return to the original of an edited photo on iOS
- Open the edited photo in the Photos app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
- Tap on the Edit button in the upper right corner.
- Press the icon with the red arrow in the lower right corner.
- Touch Back to the original drop-down menu that appears at the bottom of the screen.
And that’s all. By following these steps you will see how the photo returns to its original state and you directly exit the photo editor.
Of course, you can modify it as many times as you need, you just have to press the Edit button again and use the different tools available to make modifications without loss of original data.
