I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. You can select 'All Photos' and then tap on the three dots. There you can set the sort by capture date. Under 'Segmentation' you can then make segments by year, month, days or even hours.

On the MacOS version and by the sounds of it from the original post above also on Windows, there are automatically created folders/collections that sort photos by year and then those collections are sub-divided into month, and month is sub-divided into day.  I can quickly find all photos taken on a particular day.  Wonderful!  These automatic collections don't seem to flow to the iPad - not so wonderful :-(

John's suggestion above helps a little, but it isn't the same as the experience on Windows and MacOS.  John says you can segment down to day, but I can't figure out how to do this, and even if I could, a folder/collection structure would be nicer, at least that's what I'd prefer.  (Following the John's instructions I've segmented by year but can't see how to do month or day)

I'd really like the automatic collections to be available on iPad (IOS) please!!!

This post is was well timed for me.  I set up collections/folders for year and month on the iPad (not day, to much work), then sorted everything into them and then moved to MacOS and saw the automatic collections/folders.  I felt a bit silly for doing all the work, deleted all my folders/collections then later today was back on the iPad and noticed the inconsistency between platforms.  Needless to say, I was a tad annoyed. Grrr.

UPDATE:  I figured out how to segment by day/hour (not sure I need hour LOL).  Press and hold the black space between segments for more options.  This will work for me for now, though I still feel I'd like the folder/collection structure I get on MacOS.
