With iOS 16, Apple introduced a curious new feature that’s kind of like instant Photoshop, as you can use it to pull the subject out of any image or photo, pasting it into another photo or using it as a sticker in the Messages app. It’s nifty enough that we thought we’d show it off in our latest YouTube video.
Apple calls this feature “Lift subject from background,” and it is part of the Visual Look Up suite of functions. To use it, you just long press on any image and then you can drag it out into a different app or copy it.
It works in Photos, Screenshot, Quick Look, Safari, and even videos, and it is available on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. There’s not a lot of practical use for it, but it is certainly impressive and fun to use. Make sure to check out our video to see it in action.
