live text ios 15
Why take notes when you can just take photos?
A viral TikTok showing a student using iOS 15’s Live Text to copy, and digitize, a classmate’s notes has renewed interest in the mostly overlooked feature. Live Text allows iPhone users with an iPhone XS or newer (and the latest operating system) to take a photo of text, highlight that text, and then copy and paste it.
At least one French student clearly wasted no time in taking advantage of it.
The video went viral on Twitter on Thursday, racking up thousands of retweets, after France-based writer Juan Buis tweeted it.
Students are starting to steal each other’s notes with iOS 15 and it’s… kind of genius.
