Every year Apple announces some pretty awesome updates when it comes to their iOS software, and this year is no different.
Betas have been released already, and as people are figuring out which new features do what, it's worth noting that not all beta updates are permanent.
However one feature that's been noted with the iOS 12 beta is the ability to send direct links to iCloud photos. You can even send multiple links at a time which will last for up to 30 days.
Here's how to do it.

- Launch the Photos app from your Home screen.
- Tap the photo you would like to share the link with
- Tap Copy Link at the bottom. It looks like a paperclip.
- Share in the app of your choice by briefly holding in a text field and then tapping Paste just like you would with any other text.
Finally! Sharing with links is something I do often with Google photos. A native feature to iOS will take that extra step out 👍🏻Finally! Sharing with links is something I do often with Google photos.

What do you think?
Are you a big fan of this new feature from iOS 12? Is there another Photo app feature that you're more jazzed about?

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas. While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That's why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.
