Isn’t it amazing that we as iPhone users receive new features with every software update? Since iOS 16 was such a big update we can surely expect some cool features such as photo cutout, which is a part of the visual look up feature. Photo cutout has been in demand since their launch and I can tell you it is actually quite useful. But what if the photo cutout feature is not working properly on iOS 16.
Worry not, if you are also facing the same issue of picture cutout not working on your iOS 16 running device then you have come to the right place. In this article, I am going to share some of the fixes that can help you solve the problem of picture cutout not working on iOS 16 devices.
IOS 16 picture cutout not working: fixes
1. Cutout feature compatible file:
many of you are not aware of this but photo cutout can only work with its compatible file. If for some reason you are not able to use this feature then the first thing to do is check its file format. If the images are TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, DIB, ICO, CUR, and XBM and the videos are M4V, MP4, MOV, and AVI file format, only then photo cutout feature will work.
2. Cutout feature compatible device:
Not every iPhone device supports this feature. Your device should be running iOS 16 or later and should be having A12 Bionic chip or higher for this feature to work on your iPhone.
3. Visual look up:
Visual look up is quite useful when it comes to identifying objects like animals, books, plants, and a person from the image of your gallery and the cutout feature is a part of the visual look up feature. Make sure that the visual look up feature is enabled so that the photo cutout feature can work. To enable visual look up you may go to the settings app > Siri and search > enable show in look up feature.
4. Disable live photos:
Turning off the live photo option before using the cutout feature might actually work. If the live photo option is enabled then whenever you try and select the subject you will find that due to live photos the image keeps moving and it will become difficult for you to select the subject from the image. Hence make sure to turn off live photos.
5. Restart your device:
Restarting your device will possibly fix the issue that was stopping the cutout feature from working. It also removes unnecessary hurdles not just for this feature but any other apps or features that are facing similar issues.
6. Reset your device:
Resetting your device will allow you to delete all the data and bring your iPhone back to the factory default settings. You might want to get a backup before resetting your device. But your need to use this as a last resort if any other fixes listed above do not work.
That’s it, folks! Try the above listed fixes and they will definitely resolve your problems. And even after trying all the fixes, the picture cutout feature still does not work on your iOS 16 device, then you need to contact Apple care support and take their help in solving this issue. Let us know in the comments down below if these fixes worked for you or not.
