Shared photo library, the novelty that will NOT come with iOS 16 • ENTER.CO

The shared photo library was one of the novelties that was announced as part of the development of iOS 16. However, only 3 days before the stable version was available, it was known that it would not arrive.

The specific reason why it will not be available was not known, it was only known that this function appeared disabled in the latest Beta version of the operating system. Shared photo library is a feature that allows you to share photos and videos with up to 5 contacts with whom you can build this collaborative library. Apple’s website describes this feature as “Coming later this year.” This would confirm that the function will not arrive with iOS 16, which will be available to users on September 12.

When a user is set up or joins the shared photo library, previous photos can be added based on a start date or the people in the photos. Images can be uploaded directly from the phone’s camera or automatically when library members are nearby. The same photo system will suggest additions to the shared library from the “For You” session in Photos.

The option for this library will be located in Settings > Photos > Shared Library Settings. But this is no longer available in the Beta 9 version that was released by Apple on September 7 prior to the launch of the new operating system.

It is necessary to differentiate between the shared photo library from the Shared Albums feature in iCloud. This does remain available in Settings. These types of albums work with or without iCloud Photos. Whereas in iOS 16 shared library all contacts within the library have the same permissions to add, edit and delete photos from the library. In the same way, favorites, subtitles and keywords are also synced. For now, we will have to wait to see if in an update to iOS 16 this function begins to be active this year.
