How to add more Photos and Videos to a Memory in Photos app

  • Required: an iPhone updated to iOS 17. 

You can start adding new photos and videos to an existing memory in iOS 17 by first opening the Photos app on your iPhone.


Inside Photos, tap on the For You tab at the bottom. 

On this screen, tap on a memory you’d like to edit. To view more memories, swipe rightwards on the Memories section until you land on the memory that you want to edit. 

When the selected memory opens in fullscreen view, tap on the 3-dots icon at the top right corner.

From the overflow menu that appears, select Manage Photos.

You will now see the pictures and videos that are already part of the selected memory inside the “Suggested” tab.

Since we’re here to customize the memory with more photos and videos, you need to tap on the All tab. 

From here, choose the photos and videos you want to add to the memory by tapping on their thumbnails. When you select an item to add to your memory, its thumbnail will be marked with a tick sign at the bottom right corner.  

When you’re done adding more photos and videos to the memory, tap on Done at the top right corner. 

The selected memory will now display the newly selected items from your library in addition to the existing photos and videos.
