From now on, if you install iOS 17 on your iPhone, you will be able to access the new Photos tool through which it is possible to zoom in on an image and click on the new “Crop” button that appears in the upper right corner of the application (see screenshot). Once this is done, Photos will automatically recognize the box that you want to crop with the zoom that you have previously done.
Once you have clicked on the iOS 17 Crop button, you just have to click on “OKAY” and ready. It is definitely one of those Little things that make a difference between a good operating system and an excellent operating system.
