iOS 16 is now here and it delivers a whole host of new features that users are sure to appreciate. Aside from the obvious lock screen makeover and personalization choices, plenty of additional improvements are less obvious but still fantastic. If we talk about other functions or some tips and tricks, there is one hidden function whose ability is to extract a subject from a shot or take a subject from the background. This feature is called the iOS 16 power off feature. It’s a fantastic little feature in the Apple Photos app that lets you crop out a subject, such as a person, animal, building, pet, object, or whatever else sticks out of the background.
While many users are experimenting with iOS 16 Photo Cut feature, some users complain that they can’t lift the subject from the background after installing iOS 16 upgrade. Don’t worry if your iOS 16 photo crop isn’t working; we’ll show you how to fix it in this article.
HOW DOES THE PHOTO CUTTING FUNCTION WORK?
Photo cutout works with photos you’ve saved in the Photos app, photos you view while browsing the web, and videos. If you’re watching a YouTube video and you’re inspired by something in the movie, you don’t need to take a screenshot; instead, just long press it and copy and paste it into the notes, iMessage or WhatsApp.
PHOTO CUTTING FUNCTION DOES NOT WORK?
Since the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X all use Apple’s A11 Bionic CPUs, the image cropping feature is not accessible on these devices. If you’ve reported iOS 16 Photo Crop not working on iPhone X, I’m sorry to inform you that you may need to abandon the functionality completely and move on gracefully.
WHY DOES THE PHOTO CUTTING FUNCTION MAY NOT WORK?
The main reason why image cropping in iOS 16 does not work on iPhone X is that your device is not compatible with the photo cropping tool. You should know that this feature only works with iPhones with an A12 bionic chip or newer. Check from the list below whether your device is compatible with this feature or not.
- iPhone XS.
- iPhone XS Max.
- iPhone XR.
- iPhone 11 series.
- iPhone 12 series.
- iPhone 13 series.
- iPhone 14 series.
- iPhone SE second and third generation.
If you have a device that is compatible with this feature and you are still having issues with the power off feature, then you should pay attention. There may be a reason why the power off function is not working, such as:
- The photo eviction tool does not support the file formats. The file format currently supported by photo crop on iOS 16 are images: TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, DIB, ICO, CUR, and XBM.
Videos: M4V, MP4, MOV and AVI.
- Your subjects in your images are too blurry to cut out.
- You have not updated the device correctly.
- Your iOS 16 system has a problem.
IOS 16 PHOTO CUT OUT DOESN’T WORK: HOW TO SET UP?
- Restart your iPhone device. This will restart background services, re-register components, and possibly fix errors that cause Photo Cutout issues on your device.
- Certain iOS features are not available in all areas. You may be in an area where Photo Cutout is banned or unreleased. We suggest that you change your area to United States and see if it helps you recover Photo Cutout.
- Check if Visual Lookup is working properly for you. You can use Visual Lookup to research information about your subjects in a particular recording. This can help you learn about the locations, plants, and animals you photograph while traveling.
