Maybe the Camera Roll is a long forgotten term for iPhone users. It hardly reminds of you this feature since in the initial release of iOS 8, Apple removed a "Camera Roll" feature from the Photos app. Camera Roll was an overview of all photos on the device, but was replaced by a "Recently Added" photo view displaying photos by how recently the user captured them (Learn How to Recover Permanently Deleted Photos from iPhone 6).
