In addition to the very prominent features in iOS 16 like the customizable Lock Screen and redesigned notifications, Apple has also added minor but meaningful changes to the update. A Reddit user @FunnyDroidy shared that iOS 16 has introduced a new “Wallpaper” crop ratio in the Photos app. The new option will automatically crop users’ photos as per the device’s aspect ratio so that they edit their photos precisely to fit as their Lock Screen, Home Screen backgrounds, or as dp for their contacts.
