Use Visual Look Up to Impress Your Friends and Family

Have you ever wanted to identify a plant, flower or pet breed, or find out what that famous painting is called?

Us too. In iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple added a new Artificial-Intelligence-driven feature called Visual Look Up. It provides information about photos of plants, flowers, pets, books, artworks and landmarks.

You can impress your friends and family this week at Thanksgiving by giving it a try!

When you’re viewing a photo, swipe up or tap the sparkle-badged info button ➊ to see metadata about the image (camera model, image details, location and more). Then, tap Look Up to learn more ➋.

Visual Look Up example
Depending on the item recognized, it will make suggestions to help you learn more. For example, it may suggest Wikipedia articles, similar images from the Web, websites, bookstores, map locations and more. Tap a suggestion to switch to Safari or another app for details.

Unfortunately, if the info button doesn’t have the sparkle badge, Visual Look Up hasn’t identified anything in the photo.

Check it out and let us know what you find!
