How to delete the background of photos in batches on the iPhone thanks to iOS 16

The Photos app receives several new features and capabilities with the arrival of iOS 16. One of them is the ability to remove the background from photos, another is the ability to edit hundreds of photos in batches. And if we combine both? Then we can remove the background of all the photos that we want with the press of a button.

By default, the Photos app only allows us to remove the background from one image, not several. Thus, we have to use a little inventiveness to achieve our goal. Fortunately, the Photos app is not the only one with the ability to remove backgroundsa fact that we can rely on to eliminate the background of photos in batches.

Hundreds of backgroundless photos in a second

Removing the background of more than one photo on our iPhone or iPad requires a combination of the Photos app and the Files app. The steps are simple, although you have to take a few. Specifically, the following:

  1. We open the app Photos on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. we touch the button Select and we mark those photos that interest us.
  3. We touch the share button and choose Save to Files.
  4. We choose the folder —the Desktop may be a good idea— and we touch Keep.
  5. We open the app Records on our iPhone or iPad.
  6. We locate the folder where we have saved the images.
  7. We touch the button in the form of three dots and choose Select on the iPhone or directly the button Select on the iPad.
  8. We select the photos we just saved.
  9. We touch the button in the form of three dots on the iPhone or the button Plus on the iPad.
  10. we choose remove background.

Ok, now we can remove the original photos from the Files app and, if we wish, select the new ones with the steps we have just seen and, after touching the share button, choose Save X images to return them to the Photos app.

Thanks to the fact that in the Files app we can remove the background from multiple images simultaneously, the process is greatly simplified. Of course we can continue to do it manually in the Photos app where it will be easier if we are talking about three or four imagesbut if we talk about many more, being able to do it in batches will always be preferable.

If we add to this the possibility of editing multiple photos also with a few touches, it is clear that iOS 16 opens the doors to batch actions with our images. Something to keep in mind to avoid continuous repetitive actions. Better to edit, modify or remove the background of all our photos at once.


Apple explains why only USB-C AirPods Pro support lossless audio with Vision Pro

Apple is today marketing a revision of the AirPods Pro which has the particularity of having a USB-C port on the charging case. But that’s not the only change: the headphones also support lossless audio with the Apple Vision Pro headset.

Why can’t the second generation AirPods Pro with the Lightning Charging Case also support lossless audio with the Vision Pro? Brian Tong did an interview with two Apple executives to get the answer. Ron Huang, Apple’s vice president of sensors and connectivity, gives the answer.

Ron Huang says the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the USB-C port supports the 5GHz wireless frequency band for ultra-low latency and less interference, while the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the Lightning port is limited to the 2.4 GHz band. Apple says it’s this support for the 5GHz band that allows the updated AirPods Pro to support lossless audio with the Vision Pro.

The Apple Vision Pro headset will be available in early 2024, first in the United States. The price will be $3,499. Apple has already planned marketing in other countries, but this will happen later at a price that is currently unknown in euros.

And of course, US production obliges, a documentary on famous women could not miss the mark of “empowerment”: “As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself, this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to reclaim it, paving the way for those who would follow.” » An entire program…

It would (already) be a hit for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and a small disappointment for the iPhone 15 Pro

After just a few days of pre-orders, the lively Ming Chi Kuo can already give the main trends in iPhone sales for the current and coming quarter. For the analyst, there are no doubts: the new iPhone 15/15 Pro range is a huge success, and Apple should distribute 80 million copies until the end of the year compared to 76 million for the iPhone 14/14 Pro range. Surprisingly, the 15 Pro Max model is popular with buyers, and Kuo estimates that Apple will sell 35 million of this model (Q3 and Q4), or 7 million more 15 Pro Max compared to sales of the 14 Pro. Max over the same period.

On the other hand, sales would be a little below expectations for the two most “standard” models, namely the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro. Kuo does not give figures, but specifies that without a drop in prices (via occasional promotions for example), the volume of these sales should not change much in a few months. The surprise is undoubtedly on the side of the iPhone 15 Plus, which would sell beyond the stock capacities initially planned by Apple. The factories will have to operate more vigorously…
