    At the recommendation of Apple, I updated my phone from 12.1.4 to 13.1.2, then shortly after that to 13.1.3. As I had been using the internal photo editor more and more with 12.1.4, I wished to continue using it with 13.1.3. However, I noticed that Apple decreased the size of the preview image in the editor in the horizontal view. I rotated the phone 90 degrees to the vertical position and the preview became larger - running from edge to edge. So the preview with the camera in the horizontal position - in which position there is more room to show a larger preview - is actually smaller than the preview in vertical. And I notice that there is a tremendous amount of unused space to the left, above and below the preview.

    I have included four screen captures. Two for each of vertical and horizontal and two for each of the initial view and the view after I press the crop icon.

    Note: the screen captures in horizontal are auto-enlarged so the horizontal and vertical previews appear the same. But if you measure from screen edge to screen edge in both horizontal and vertical, you'll see what I mean.

    If you pinch-zoom in on the image, you can bring it full screen or zoom in further for minute details.

    I tried that. It doesn't fix the problem.

    Really? I am able to pinch-zoom and bring the photo full screen fine. I have the 11Pro.

    I can too. But does that bring the crop edges full screen as well?

    Do the crop tool edges (the white lines) expand with the edges of the photo?

    Unfortunately not for image cropping. For everything else with photo editing, you can pinch-zoom.

    I made some measurements on the iPhone7 and found there was a 42% reduction in size for both the horizontal and vertical axis.

    I have attached five additional screen captures.
