Photos app has got some impressive add-ons including the option to create a new iCloud album to share with family and friends in iOS 12. So, if you have some memorable images and fascinating videos, you can make an album that’s universally accessible and more secure.

Personally, I have always liked the idea of creating a shared album wherein all the wonderful shots captured at different occasions are stored. It’s one of the coolest ways to remain hooked with your loved ones. Without making much ado, swim across to get started!
