Apple Unveils New 'For You' Tab and Sharing Suggestions Coming to Photos in iOS 12

Apple has announced at its WWDC keynote that a new For You tab is coming to its iOS 12 Photos app that will include intelligent Sharing Suggestions.


Apple explained that the Photos app is gaining a new "For You" tab, similar to Apple Music, that has an "On this day" section showcasing existing memories, looping Live Photos, Portrait photos, and more.

The For You tab will also suggest editing tools to try out to improve pictures in your library.
An all-new For You tab surfaces favorite moments in one place, combining Memories and iCloud Shared Albums. A new sharing suggestions feature makes it easier to share photos with friends, and friends who receive photos are prompted to share back any photos and videos they have from the same trip or event.

Search suggestions surface the most relevant Events, People, Places, Groups, Categories and recent searches, and new search functionality lets users combine multiple search terms to find just the right photos.
The Sharing Suggestions feature meanwhile essentially uses AI to suggest people with whom you might want to share your photos, based on who appears in them. Photos shared through the new feature can be shared at full resolution over iCloud.

Yeah. And manual face identification like in photos on Mac. And better edit tools or plug in support.
