In the fifth beta versions of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and macOS Big Sur, you can now hide your hidden photo album.
It has been a long time to hide photos on iPhone, iPad and Mac. Hidden photos are moved from the shared folder with photos to a separate album with the telling name “Hidden”. If your phone falls into the hands of another user, then by chance he will not see your personal photos in a few minutes (unless he specifically looks for them). In the fifth beta of iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and macOS Big Sur Apple, photos can still be hidden, but you can additionally hide the album itself from the gallery. The only time a hidden album will be available is when you select a photo when using other apps.
How to remove an album with hidden photos on iPhone with iOS 14 or iPad with iPadOS 14
- Open up “Settings” on the device, select the section “Photo”.
- Remove the toggle switch from the parameter Hidden almub (so far the title and description are only available in English).
- Go to the photo, scroll to the “Other albums” section – the “Hidden” album should disappear.
- To return the album with hidden photos, turn on the switch.
By default, the hidden photo album appears in the Photos application.
The ability to hide the hidden photo album is only available in the fifth beta of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and macOS Big Sur, and may not be included in the fall final release. For example, Apple has already removed the selfie mirroring introduced in the first beta of iOS 14.
