With iOS 15 or iPadOS 15.1 or later, you can use Live Text to copy the text in photos, translate languages, make phone calls, and more. Let’s explore this feature.
This is for iPhone and iPad running OS 15 or higher. Screenshots are from iPhone XR
The Live Text feature can easily identify text. The text can then be copied, translated, or used for a search. Live Text also can capture text from your photos. So, instead of retyping text from a photo, the use of Live Text is a time saver.
To use Live Text, you need an iPhone XR, iPhone XS, or a newer model. For the iPad, an iPad 8th generation or later, iPad Mini 5th generation or later, iPad Pro 11 inches or 12.9 inches.

First, to turn on Live Text for all supported languages, head to:
Settings > General > Language & Region
