When Apple released iOS 10, the latest system software for the iPhone/iPad, it made a big deal out of the major features, like a redesigned Music app and contextual predictions in autocorrect.
But Apple’s engineer elves worked for a year to overhaul iOS 10, and they’ve planted lots of hidden gems. Today, I’m happy to present another of the best iOS 10 features that Apple forgot to mention.
In iOS 10, the new Photos app introduces Memories: beautiful, automatic, musical slideshows that include all the pix and videos from a certain trip or weekend. Most people are pleasantly surprised at how coherent and well-created these are, even though they’re totally automatic.
Open Photos; at the bottom, tap Memories. There they are. You can tap one to play it; you can also adjust the musical style, the length, and even which photos and videos are in it.
And once you’re satisfied, you can share it or post it online.
