iOS 11 drops ‘beta’ status for Portrait Mode, allows effect to be removed from existing photos

It appears that Apple has decided that the iPhone 7 Plus Portrait Mode feature will be ready for prime time with the release of iOS 11. The latest iOS 11 beta removes the “beta” status of the feature, first introduced in iOS 10.1 last fall, and also adds the ability to remove the effect from existing photos after the fact.

When editing an existing Depth Effect photo, a “Depth” button will appear at the top that the user can tap to toggle OFF the effect, similar to the way in which Live Photos can be edited to normal still photos. Only Portrait Mode photos shot under iOS 11 can be edited in this manner, suggesting that iOS 10 did not store the necessary data to allow the effect to be removed.
