I never used "Moments" from the iOS Photos app but, under iOS 12, "For You" pops up with these little videos now and again. I'm fairly impressed. Without me having named any of the pics or videos, the phone has identified my lovely wife and created this little video of her.

Watch the video all the way through. I included both the portrait and landscape orientations that Apple created. What I find really interesting is that it looks different and has a different "tone" and feel in landscape vs portrait mode. Landscape includes people and things to either side of Melissa that take the focus off of her.

The differences are especially notable in the last shot - in landscape mode, you can't see the lower half of Melissa and can't see she has a beer in her hand. :)

It's also interesting that the software was "smart" enough to know to group all of our wedding shots together - the last 15 seconds of each segment are from our wedding in Australia last December.

PS: I had to edit some of the photos out because Melissa has "final cut" and she didn't approve of some of my shots. :)
