Find people in Photos on iPod touch

The Photos app  scans your photo library for faces and adds the most frequently found faces to the People album. When you add names to the faces, you can search for photos by name.

Note: With iCloud Photos, your People album is kept up to date on all your devices that meet these minimum system requirements: iOS 11, iPadOS 13, or macOS 10.13. (You must be signed in with the same Apple ID on all the devices.)
