Photos of iOS 16: 7 new features coming to your iPhone

The Photos app in iOS 16 gets some great additions that Apple has trumpeted since it premiered the software update in June. But a handful of small tweaks to the photo browsing and editing app on your iPhone to introduce new ways to organize and refine images once the full iOS 16 update arrives in the fall.

IOS 16 Photo Editing is iCloud’s shared photo library, a new addition that promises to make sharing and editing pictures with family members an easier affair. However, we’ve already shown you how to set up an iCloud shared photo library, as it’s probably one of the first features you’ll try when you download the iOS 16 public beta.

Likewise, one of the most impressive additions to iOS 16 in general is the ability to tap the subject of a photo and lift it from the background in order to paste it into other apps installed on your iPhone such as Notes, Messages, and Mail. The feature is tied to iOS 16’s updated visual search feature, however, and while you’ll mostly lift a subject from photos stored in the Photos library, you can also do the same thing with images in Safari and QuickLook, as well as screenshots, as I have found out working on my iOS 16 beta handy.

Another high-profile photo addition in iOS 16 draws on Live Text, the feature introduced by Apple last year that lets you tap text in photos to copy it or perform quick tasks like address searches, phone calls, or browse the Web. IOS 16 Live Text extends the functionality to text included in paused videos and we showed you how to copy text in a video with Live Text.
