iOS 16: How to Detach, Copy and Share Photo Subjects Listen to this article

In iOS 16, currently in beta, Apple has improved its visual search capability for photos by allowing you to separate the subject of an image from its background so you can copy it to the clipboard to use elsewhere Or share it on any other app. ,

Apple says the feature is based on advanced machine learning, and in our time experimenting with it in iOS 16, its ability to recognize subjects in photos is pretty impressive.

In fact, its ease of use may make laborious subject separation a thing of the past in image editing applications. Is that how it works.

  1. Launch Photos and choose an image from your library that has a well-defined theme.
  2. Hold the subject until it sways and a white glow begins to flow around its outline.
  3. In the pop-up menu that appears, tap copy To send the isolated subject to the clipboard to paste elsewhere, tap or share… To access the standard sharing options in the Actions menu and send it on its way.


  4. Alternatively, press and hold the subject to take it out of the background. Now, without taking your finger off the screen, use a second finger to exit the Photos app and launch Messages, Mail, Notes, or any other app that accepts images.
  5. Now drag and drop the theme into the input field to place it where you want.


That’s all. You can also use it on paused frames in the video. This feature works not only on Photos, but also on Screenshots and Quick View feature of Files app.

As mentioned, this feature uses advanced machine learning and image analysis, so it’s only available on phones with the A12 Bionic chip or newer. The A12 Bionic processor debuted in 2018 on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, so you’ll need to use one of these for an iPhone or later model to work. iOS 16 is expected to be released in the fall.
