Let’s cut to the chase, here’s how to copy text from a picture iOS 15 using the Live Text feature:


Take A Picture

First, you’ll be needing a clear picture with some juicy information on it. Maybe a menu or business sign? Great! Now, if the text is a little small, use the pinch-zoom gesture on your iPhone to get a nice clear visual of the information you’ll need to copy and paste.


Copy And Paste
