Memories option inside Photos App
Before we dive in and talk about Memory Mix, let’s take a look back at the Memories option nestled inside your Photos App. A lot of people might not even know about it. This is because after taking a few photos, you simply choose and upload it to your social networking site of choice or send it to other people and close the app. Not knowing that there is a creative way of stitching your photos.
The Memory option inside your Photos app debuted in 2016 when Apple launched iOS 10. A lot of people believe it is the company’s take at directly competing with some popular apps at that time. Some of which are “On This Day” feature of Facebook and even Timehop.
The way it works is by using the combination of AI detection as well as facial recognition all done on-device only. This is is important to note since everything happens inside your device, no data is sent to Apple servers for your privacy and security. The feature automatically puts significant photos and video clips together which you can edit as a video.
