iPhone keeps track of all your bra shotsSome iPhone users on Twitter discovered a whole cleavage category when they searched for "brassiere" on the photos app.
It looks like your iPhone could be keeping tabs on all your underwear shots. A user on Twitter exposes the feature after searching the term brassiere on the photos app of her iPhone. Turns out it pulls up more than just bras. It could mean you have a whole cleavage category on your phone that you didn't know about. At least that was the case for Chrissy Teigen. And the twitterverse was obviously not happy. But it turns out there's a perfectly logical explanation for it, well sort of. For starters, it's not like every iPhone has some secret bra album, in fact according to Apple, it doesn't even categorize them until you type in the term for the very first time. Apple uses machine learning on its iPhones to automatically detect images that match your search, to help you sort through that photo reel, and that includes just about any term, shoes, scarfs, swimsuits, or anything that Apple decides to categorize, including brazier, although doesn't include boxers or briefs And it is not exclusive to Apples Photo app. Google Photos does the same thing except they send the photos to servers to analyze. Apple keeps a image recognition software local on the phone. Which means it won't be sending you brassiere shots to process on the Cloud even if they are stored on iCloud. Safer, yes. But even iCloud can be hacked. So probably best to keep those brassiere shots safe.
