Apple Announces Photo Sharing Through “Shared Photo Streams” Coming in iOS6

It looks like previous rumors about an updated photo stream in iOS6 were right. Apple has officially announced what they’re calling “shared photo streams,” which are exactly what they sound like: mark certain photos or albums as “shared,” choose who you would like to share them with, and you’re done. The folks you chose to share the album with will get a notification (if they have an iOS6 device or a Mac with Mountain Lion) and be able to browse, like and comment on your pictures in iPhoto, Aperture, or even on AppleTV. Non-Apple users will have to settle with browsing your shared photos on the web. Read more…

Up until now iCloud has been entirely a synching service (take a picture on your iPhone and you have it on all of your devices right away) but the new iCloud will allow users to create and share albums with other iCloud users. As is usually the case with Apple details are hard to come by, but sources “familiar with the matter” are fairly certain we should expect social-network-like sharing and commenting abilities. Watch your back Flickr, Apple’s coming for you!
