iOS 16, macOS Ventura beta finally delivers major iCloud photos upgrade
Apple has launched this week the latest round of betas for developers of its new software, and is finally bringing with them Apple’s new iCloud shared photo library.
After the latest round of beta for developers for iOS 16 and macOS Ventura released on Wednesday, users quickly noticed that the new feature is now available:
Apple announced its new iCloud shared photo library at WWDC 2022 as a new way to share photos with the whole family. From Apple:
ICloud’s shared photo library is the easiest and most seamless way to share photos with up to six family members, so everyone can collaborate and enjoy the collection in Memories, Featured Photos and the Photos widget. Users can share all of their previous photos or use setup tools to contribute specific photos based on a start date or the people in the photos. Photos can be added to the collection manually or by Bluetooth proximity or to share suggestions on For You. When someone in the shared library adds, edits, or deletes photos, the library is updated for everyone.
This is a great new feature for users of devices like Apple’s best iPhone, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 when it launches later this year. Thanks to the power of iCloud, it will also be available on major Apple product lines, such as Mac and iPad. Apple is currently testing all of its new software with developers, but a public beta has been promised to users this month, so it could arrive any day.
