Copy Text From a Picture on iPhone


First, you’ll need to take a photo of the object with text. Do that if you haven’t already. Then, open the “Photos” app on your iPhone.

Open the "Photos" app.

Select the photo that contains the text you’d like to identify.

Select a photo from the gallery.

If the Photos app detects text, you’ll see a little scanning icon in the bottom corner.

The identified text will be highlighted. You can now treat it like you would when highlighting text anywhere. Tap and hold to bring up the select tool.

Tap and hold the highlighted text.

This will bring up handles so you can drag to select more text. A floating toolbar will also appear with a number of options, including “Copy.”

"Copy" from the toolbar.

Once you’ve copied the text, it can be pasted anywhere just like you regularly would. That’s all there is to it! This is a nifty little feature to know about and it can save you some time when transferring text from the real world.
