The latest version of the iPhone operating system, iOS 15, brings a lot of notable changes in interface, features, and security. Among them, the highlight is a number of new features that use artificial intelligence to analyze the content in the image.
Although object recognition has been around for a while, Apple announced that the implementation of the feature this time around is very different. It’s Apple’s AI that runs right on the iPhone instead of doing the work on a cloud server. Therefore, user-defined or copied content is not sent back to Apple, increasing security.
One of the most striking capabilities of this new technology is being able to copy and paste text from photos. For example, from a snapshot of a book page, using the new feature you can paste that text into a document or note. In addition, the new technology will make it easier for users to call or email, due to its ability to recognize phone numbers and email addresses.
The feature can also recognize handwritten text. In June, Apple introduced iOS 15 and iPad OS 15 for the first time at the WWDC Global Developers Conference 2021 event. When it announced the feature, Apple put out an experiment that could turn doodles. scribble notes on the whiteboard.
The way the new feature works is illustrated below.
The list of devices that can be updated to iOS 15 includes, iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPhone SE (2016), iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 8/8Plus, iPhone X/XS/XR/XS Max, iPhone 11 /11 Pro/11 Pro Max, iPhone 12/12 mini/12 Pro/12 Pro Max, iPhone SE (2020) and 7th generation iPod touch. Particularly, the iPhone 13 series came with iOS 15 pre-installed upon release.
