Did someone give you a calling card, and do you need to copy the details from it? Most of us are still copying the details manually thus, as we say, the “traditional” way.
Well, time to remove this manual process and step into the future of OCR!
When Apple released its iOS 15, it didn’t only focus on strengthening the security and performance of the system. Apple also added tons of features that will make our lives easier.
One feature that you will surely love is Live Text.
This feature is one of Apple’s cutting-edge OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. Live Text simply identifies and copies text directly from your photos or from the object focused on your iPhone’s camera frame.
Take note that the Live Text feature will only work using the models of iPhone XR, XS, and later.
