Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video For You, part 1, part of iPhone and iPad Photography with iOS 12.
- [Instructor] In iOS 12, the Memories feature from the previous version of iOS has been renamed as For You, as in personalized for you. This section includes sharing suggestions, memories, featured photos, shared album activity, and more. Let's check it out. So if you go into the Photos app, just tap on the small, little For You button down at the bottom. It's right next to the Photos button there. And the items in this section are automatically created and new ones will appear all the time.
Now if you use 3D Touch on most of the items in the For You section, you can hard press and then swipe up for additional options. So let's take a look at what we have here. We have Sharing Suggestions, and this just presents you with groups of photographs that you shot recently and people you might choose to share them with. So I tap on this first one for Los Angeles and then I can tap Next and it presents me with a list of people I might want to share these pictures with.
Now if you're wondering where these people are coming from, these are people and faces that it is identifying in the photos from that trip to Los Angeles. Just going to tap cancel to go back, and then tap the back button there to go back to the main For You section. I'm going to come back to Memories. We're actually going to be spending quite a lot of time on that. And next, we have Featured Photos, where it's just pulling out recent photos and, sometimes, older photos that you might want to relive.
Next, we have Effect Suggestions, where it is giving you ideas for how you might want to improve or enhance a photo. On a lot of the items in the For You section, you can swipe horizontally to see additional items. All right, next we have Shared Album Activity. So if you have shared an album of photos with somebody else, you can see recent album activity there, and if you tap on See All, you'll be able to see all the comments and messaging that you have exchanged with the other person in that album.
All right, let's come back up here to the Memories section. So memories are based on a time and a place, while others may be collections of images of a specific person. And once again, you can scroll horizontally to see additional memories there. If you tap on a memory, it'll open up and you'll see a summary view of the pictures. And if you tap on Show More, it will give you smaller thumbnails so you can see more of the photographs.
Now even though memories are created automatically for you, if you want to create a memory based on a group of images that you select, you can either use an existing album of photos or create a new album. Let's move over to my iPad to take a look at that.
