Apple has started rolling out the iOS 16 for public beta and fans have a reason to be super excited. The new software update comes with several new features and improvements. One such feature that has been introduced in the Photos application lets users remove background from the images taken on an iPhone. It applies to iOS 16 compatible handsets like iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and others. With this new feature, iOS 16 supported iPhone users won't have to rely on third-party apps or photo editing software to remove noisy and unpleasant backgrounds from the image. The feature relies on the latest technologies like Machine Learning. It removes the selected subject from the photo by dropping or pasting it somewhere else.

If you have downloaded the new iOS 16 public beta on your device then you can access this new feature to remove the background from an image on the iPhone this way.
