Apple included a handy new feature in the Photos app on iOS 9 (preview of new features here) sure to please those who frequently share multiple pictures and videos.

Once you've installed iOS 9, be it the public preview or the official release this fall, you'll be able to launch the Photos app and select content with a swipe of a finger. Here's how it works:

  • Launch the Photos app
  • Open the album you want to select photos and videos in.
  • Tap on the select button in the top-right corner.
  • Tap and hold on a photo, then without lifting your finger, slide it in any direction to continue selecting content.

As you slide your finger, the blue check mark icon will appear on each thumbnail, indicating that the item is selected. Taking your finger off the screen will stop the selection process, making all of your selfies readily shareable in bulk.
