APPLE'S latest iPhone update will make hidden photos even harder for prying eyes to find.
The tech giant is planning to introduce a number of huge changes to iOS later this year.
But there's one development that'll interest anyone with private snaps tucked away in the hidden folder of their iPhone.
For anyone that doesn't know already, iPhone owners can hide embarrassing or naughty pictures from the main photo library section.
Instead, they are put in a hidden folder at the bottom of the albums section.
That doesn't stop anyone with access to your phone from going in it though.
