Foreground Blur

You probably have used portrait mode before when taking photos. It focuses on the subject and blurs the background. Now, with the update, portrait mode lets you blur objects in the foreground of a photo for more depth‑of‑field effects!

To get this look, make sure you switch to portrait mode when taking a photo. Then, simply tap on the background to focus. This will take the subject out of focus, creating a foreground blur!

Duplication Detection

Photos identifies duplicate photos in Albums > Utilities so you can quickly clean up your library.

Go to your Photos App > Albums then scroll down until you see this Duplicates section. Here, you can see all your photos that you have multiples of! Delete them all, or delete some, it’s a great addition to help clean up your camera roll!

*Note: After updating, this feature may take time to sync your duplicate photos into this folder. Don’t worry, if you don’t initially see this option, it will load in a couple of hours.
