add apple music to memories to iPhone and ipad

Apple Photos received a much-needed feature boost with the iOS 15 update on iPhone. Users can finally check the picture and video details, edit their date and time, and even add songs from Apple Music to Memories created by the Photos app. Here’s how to add Apple Music to your Memories created by Photos on iPhone and iPad.

Let’s rewind a bit. Whenever you have many photos and videos in Photos, the app will automatically create a Memory from it. This will include pictures and videos in a beautiful single video with animations, text, and suitable music. Up until now, users haven’t had many options in terms of music selection. All that changes with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Now you have an entire Apple Music library to pair with your Memories.
