A photo collage is an excellent way to showcase multiple pictures at a go. However, you might find it difficult to create one on your iPhone if you don’t know how to combine multiple photos into a single picture.

An example is the Shortcuts app, while others are Pic Stitch, Google Photos, Canva, and Layout. Let’s look at how to combine multiple photos on your iPhone to create a collage!
