When iOS 16 launches this fall, everyone is going to be talking about their custom lock screen. But the real star feature of the update might be something that gets used (and abused) across social media and messaging every day by millions–a built-in capability to simply cut the subject out of nearly any photo.

I don’t mean only your own photos in your own library. Rather, this is an expansive system-wide feature that can also pull the subject out of images on the web in Safari and images in Files. It’s not perfect, with occasional fuzzy edges or strange selections, but it can be a huge time saver and lots of fun. Here’s how it works.

In your Photos app, select an image and long-press on the subject. It works best if the subject is clearly defined from the background. The image will flash a white outline, and then when you release your finger you’ll see Copy and Share… options. Select Copy to copy to the clipboard, or Share… to open the share sheet to share just the subject.

On a website, long-press any image and release. You’ll see a pop-up menu. Here, Share, Copy, and Save to Photos refers to the entire image. So choose Copy Subject to select just the subject of the image.
