Now that global traveling is back on track, knowing how to translate text on iPhone is a trick that will surely come in handy.

Whether you have one of the latest iPhones or are still rocking an older model, iOS 15 has a couple of tricks that can take your breath away. All of them have the ability to translate text from an image on your phone, or even by pointing your camera at something, using the Live Text feature.

Why is this feature useful? Well, suppose you are at a café or restaurant in Paris or are looking for your Airbnb in Seoul — you can simply face your phone against a menu or street sign to get a quasi-instant translation.

What’s more, this feature works with images already available on your phone, which implies you can take a screenshot of a webpage or app and translate the text in it. It’s included right in to any iPhone operating iOS 15 and above, and we are going to explain you how to perform it in our guide below.
