Memories, a feature present in the Photos app (iPhone, iPad and Mac), makes the experience of reliving moments registered in the photo library of Apple devices incredible. Its automatic learning recognizes places, people and special events and displays them in small movie collections.
In addition to viewing them on the device itself, memories created in the Photos app can also be shared with friends and family — even if they aren’t Apple users. When sending them from an e-mail attachment, or via WhatsApp, the memories are transformed into videos and continue to maintain the characteristics of the original format.
So, see how to access the Memories feature on your iPhone, iPad and Mac and learn to share them with others easily.
