The new Live Text feature lets users copy and share text within photos, translate languages, make a call, and more. Live Text recognizes useful information within your photos and online images, so you can make a call, send an email, or look up directions with just a tap on the highlighted text in a photo.

You can also use Live Text in the Camera app by pointing your iPhone camera at a photo or image with text, then tap the indicator icon to quickly make a phone call, translate the text, and more.

To turn on Live Text for all supported languages, go to Settings > General > Language & Region, and enable Live Text.
