Apple iOS 16 makes it easier to delete duplicate images in your photo library

Apple released iOS 16, iPadOS 16 systems, and has released the first developer preview Beta.

If you take and save a lot of photos with your iPhone, chances are you'll have some duplicate photos clogging up your photo library unnecessarily. Thankfully, with iOS 16, Apple has made it easier to remove any duplicates that are taking up useless space on your device.

Apple calls the new feature "duplicate detection" and it works as expected. Using on-device machine learning on iOS 16 and macOS Ventura, your device can now easily detect and aggregate all duplicate photos in your library under the Utilities section of Photos.

From there, you can easily delete them, free up space on your device, and organize your photo library. Since this feature requires your device to scan and organize your entire photo library, it may take some time for your device to start serving duplicates for removal.

iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are scheduled to release public betas in July, and developer preview betas are currently available. iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and watchOS 9 will all be publicly released this fall.
