  • Apple's newest ad for the iPhone 7 has been posted to YouTube today. This one isn't specifically about the phone, however - it's all about Memories (with a capital M). That's the name of a tab inside the Photos app that comes preinstalled on the company's smartphones. When you go to the Memories tab in Photos, what you'll find are automatically created movies out of the photos and videos sitting in your camera roll. These will be generated based on date, location, and the content of the photos you have. So you'll get a Memory about your last trip, but also one of your children growing up, for example. The videos created inside Memories come with a soundtrack too - and if all of this feels incredibly familiar, it's because Google Photos basically does the same thing. The ad embedded above looks at a process that happens automatically on your iPhone and delivers the answer to the question: "but what if a person would manually do all that?". Ap..
