How to Use Memories in iOS 10?
There are quite a few things that you can do when it comes to using the Memories photo app with the new operating system, so let’s break them down a notch.

Memories are a video generator which is going to align a few photos combined by a preset factor. All you need to do is go to Photos and select the Memories tab on the bottom of your screen. You are going to see the play button in the bottom right corner. Tap it and let the app do the rest. You will quickly see all of your precious pictures combined in a single clip, including regular and live photos and they will appear in a beautiful slideshow on the background of a charming music.
2. Editing the Slideshow
Of course, iOS 10 provides you with the opportunity to customize every single aspect of the slideshow. With this in mind, let’s take a look at what you can do.
- Customize your soundtrack – you can easily customize your soundtrack and choose background music which is offered by the company. In order to do so, you need to tap on the “My music” button and select your own music. Of course, you can also choose not to include any music and the slideshow will go on rolling without any soundtrack. You can do this by tapping on the “none” button.
- You can add and delete photos – the Memories application provides you with a complete freedom to customize the photos and the videos that you want to be included in the slideshow. In order to do so, you have to tap on the Photos & Videos button and select the ones you’d like to add or get rid of the ones that you dislike. You can preview the slideshow by properly dragging the bar which appears on the top of your screen.
- You can share the created slideshow – as always, Apple has completely integrated Social Media, Messaging API and whatever you can think of within the Memories app. Clicking on the button which appears on the lower left corner of your screen will allow you to share the slideshow through any application that you find desirable.
