Type Method


Retrieves asset collections in the specified moment list collection.


class func fetchMoments(inMomentList momentList: PHCollectionList, options: PHFetchOptions?) -> PHFetchResult<PHAssetCollection>



A collection list whose type is PHCollectionListType.momentList.


Options that specify a filter predicate and sort order for the fetched asset collections, or nil to use default options. For details, see PHFetchOptions.

Return Value

A fetch result that contains the requested PHAssetCollection objects, or an empty fetch result if no objects match the request.


The Photos app automatically creates moments to group assets by time and location, and also creates moment lists to group related moments. Moment lists have two subtypes: a moment cluster groups a few related moments, and a moment year groups all moments in a calendar year.
