How to Make Custom Memories on iPhone and iPad with Specific Photos

With passing time, all of us click thousands of pictures on our iPhone and iPad. Whether life events are good or bad, they hold a special place in our memories. Thanks to the unique curation feature, the Photos app automatically creates Memories from our photos with a touch of music and a little animation. No matter how smart Apple algorithms are, but they can never read our feelings or hearts. At times, we hope to create custom Memories on iPhone with specific photos.

That is very much possible, and that is what this post is all about. If you have a special day approaching – like your wife’s birthday or your son’s eighteenth birthday, then this is something you should give a try. These custom Memories will create some new ones, beautiful ones. Let’s not waste any further time and see how you can do it.
