iOS Camera Roll may be brought back by popular demand

Apple may be preparing to reintroduce the popular Camera Roll folder within the iOS Photos app, allowing users to easily see all of their snaps in one place.

The feature, once an iOS staple, was ditched with the launch of iOS 8 last month, much to the dismay of many Apple loyalists.

Instead the Camera Roll album was replaced by a ‘Recently Added’ menu, which only serves up photos taken by the user in the last 30 days.

However, it looks like Apple may have listened to grumpy users as the Camera Roll has been spotted within the iOS 8.1 beta release notes by the Product Reviews website.

The news doesn’t guarantee Apple plans to reinstate the album. It may just be replacing the name ‘Recently Added’ with something more familiar in order to reduce confusion among users.

As of right now, we’re not sure when iOS 8.1 will be landing, but given the company’s update woes in the last couple of weeks it’d be wise to take its time.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, AppleInsider reported that a minor iOS 8 update is now allowing users to deploy a completely blank first homescreen by shifting apps to the second screen along.

The dock can stay in the bottom of the screen, ensuring don’t have to be distracted by a screen full of apps every time they wish to just pick up their phone to make a call and send an email.

It’s a minor update, but an update nonetheless.
