Places, Please! Geolocation in Apple’s Photos

You are on a tour bus in an unfamiliar city and you see something that you’d like to visit later. Take a picture of it with your iPhone, and the Places feature in the Photos app can locate it for you. With a new feature in Photos in iOS 13, you can even get directions to get back there!
