How to remove a photo background using the Photos app

If you have a photo saved in your gallery and you want to remove its background, open the Photos app ( Photos ) and select it. Then hold your finger over the person or object you want to isolate.

Then tap on “Copy.” Then open the other app where you want to paste it (like in Notes).
