Thanks to the iPhone’s built-in Photos app, you can create a slideshow and play your photos and videos one by one without manual intervention. You can choose a custom background music track, theme and even slideshow speed.
Remark: The Photos app only allows you to play your content as a slideshow; you cannot save these slideshows for later playback on another device. However, as a workaround, you can record a video of your iPhone’s screen while it’s playing and save it, or stream it to your Apple TV using AirPlay.
