Your iPhone's Photos app automatically creates slideshows that use your images and music to generate a feature called Memories. These videos represent periods of time or vacations you take. For instance, I visited Cancun a few years back. My iPhone recognized I was in an unusual place and created a Memories video of that period of time. Likewise, if you take an unusually high number of photos in a day, Memories will assume an event took place and will create a Memories video for that day. You may also see other Memories such as Best of Last 3 Months or Best of the Year. When you go to play a Memories video, you can customize its music, length, the images and videos included, and the title before saving or sharing it. Here’s how to edit and share Memories.
