The device’s powerful cameras allow you to capture stunning images with a range of features, from night mode to deep fusion. To make it even better, Apple has added a new feature called “featured photos.” This feature allows you to select your favorite shots and have them appear on your lock screen as a rotating slideshow.

The featured photos feature is incredibly easy to use. When you take a photo or video, you can select the “favorite” option and it will be added to your featured photos album. You can also add photos from your photo library or from other apps like Instagram and Facebook. From there, all you have to do is select which images you would like to appear in the slideshow on your lock screen.

The slideshow is customizable, allowing you to choose how often the images rotate as well as whether they appear in random order or in the order they were taken. You can also choose whether or not captions are included with each image, which makes it easier for friends and family to identify the subject of each shot.
