It can be used not only to consume content—such as looking at pictures, watching video, reading a book, doing email, or browsing the web—but also to create content.

Machine learning has made the Photos app even more valuable by making searching easier, automatically surfacing pictures from the past, and assembling photos into slideshows. Bring your Apple device, updated to the latest version of its system software.
