How to Crop a Photo on iPhone

Most of the people today do not frame their photos in the perfect way when they shoot it. In this tech-savvy world of today, the convenience of clicking photos on mobile phones is so much easier than lugging around a huge camera. Smartphones have incredible cameras, especially the new iPhone X, which gives you the convenience of carrying it anywhere with you, easily snapping high-res pics, and sharing them on social media whenever you want. 

But, in most of the cases, the photos you take may not be framed or shot in the right way. Either the background space is too much, the main subject is out of focus, or there might be some obstruction in the picture, such as someone else stepping inside the frame. Most of the time, people solve such issues with the help of the crop tool, which trims down the size and frame of the image itself. 

However, the game of cropping a photo is completely different when it comes to the iPhone. In Android phones, the crop option is readily available below the picture. But, in the case of the iPhone, it differs with each version of iOS. So, let’s find out how to crop a photo on iPhone.
