    FOLLOW UP: my iPhone 8 does not display the ‘EDIT’ option. Is there another way to rename the albums? In the first comment I was also asking how to delete an album that I created. And is there any way to physically rearrange the order of the albums: alphabetical, all friends together, etc.? Thank you for any help you can offer.
