Apple announced its new iCloud Shared Photo Library at WWDC 2022 as a new way to share photos with your whole family. From Apple:
This is a great new feature for users of devices like Apple's best iPhone, the iPhone 13 as well as the iPhone 14 when it debuts later this year. Thanks to the power of iCloud it will also be available across Apple's major product lines including Mac and iPad. Apple is currently testing all of its new software with developers, but a public beta has been promised for users this month, so that could arrive any day now.

Who would want every family member to instantly see all pictures that were taken?
Sounds like a nightmare scenario.
