Apple released the latest round of developer betas for its new software this week, finally bringing with them Apple’s new iCloud Shared Photo Library.
After the latest round of developer betas for iOS 16 and macOS Ventura released on Wednesday, users were quick to note that the new feature is now available:
Apple announced the new iCloud Shared Photo Library at WWDC 2022 as a new way to share photos with your whole family. From Apple:
iCloud Shared Photo Library is the easiest way to seamlessly and automatically share photos between up to six family members, so everyone can collaborate and enjoy the collection in Memories, Featured Photos, and the Photos tool. Users can share all of their past photos, or use the setting tools to contribute specific photos based on the start date or the people in the photos. Photos can be added to the group manually, through Bluetooth proximity, or Share Suggestions in For You. When anyone 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 as well as iPhone 14 when it debuts later this year. Thanks to the power of iCloud, it will also be available across major Apple product lines including Mac and iPad. Apple is currently testing all of its new software with developers, but a public beta was introduced to users this month, so that could arrive any day now.
