It is very simple to crop pictures on the iPhone, and you have several options depending on how you might wish to crop and edit your picture. If you already have pictures you would love to crop on your iOS device, the perfect spot to edit would be the Photos application.
In there, users will be able to crop, rotate, include filters or make adjustments to the lighting of any of their photos. It will also be possible to revert any cropped picture back to their original picture.
However, pictures can also be cropped just by capturing a screenshot on your iPhone, and saving that cropped picture straight to the Photos app. This editing feature is useful for fast crops of images you just found on your device. See How To Crop A Photo On Your iPhone?:
