Apple are now storing your bra pictures in a separate folder
People are outraged at the discovery of the fact that your iPhone recognises your bra photos and stores them in separate folders.
If you go to your photos and type in 'Brassiere', your phone will load a series of photos (that's if you have any) of your chest.
ATTENTION ALL GIRLS ALL GIRLS!!! Go to your photos and type in the ‘Brassiere’ why are apple saving these and made it a folder!!?!!?????

Creepy definitely isn't the word. Apple users are now concerned that the software used in their phones is scanning their phone content for such photos, and then organising them into a folder.
It's true. If u type in "brassiere" in the search of your iphotos, it has a category for every boob or cleavage pic you've ever taken. Why. pic.twitter.com/KWWmJoRneJ

While it might seem that the company are trying to find dirt on their users, their website states that their software scans photos so that it can then categorize your photos to show who and what is in them (still creepy if you ask me).
“When you search your photos, all of the face recognition and scene and object detection are done completely on your device,”
Some users are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this, and are posting screenshots of what their phones think are explicit.
I tried the “brassiere” thing and my results were just too good not to share. pic.twitter.com/c5PlNlqTvE

It is not a good idea to store such photos on your phone anyway, however for those who do decide to keep such content on their devices, please beware of the fact that if your phone got hacked, there has never been an easier way to find these photos in half the time.
