Apple Inc. AAPL added a tons of new feature upgrades in iOS 17 last year, and one of our top picks from the list is the ability to create personal stickers using photos. That’s right – you can now create your own very personal stickers right out of the box in iOS 17.
What Happened: iPhone users can create and save their own stickers with the iOS 17 update. Imagine having your own personal set of stickers of your cat or dog or those of your own laughing and making faces.
Apple introduced the “Remove Subject from Background” feature in iOS 16. Using this same feature, you can create stickers if you have installed the latest iOS 17 Beta update on your iPhone.
Even better, these stickers can even animate if you use a Live Photo. Apple has also added the ability to add filters, outlines, and more to customize it even further.
