iOS 16’s live text lets you copy text from video

With iOS 15, Apple had introduced a new feature called Live Text. It uses intelligence on the device to recognize and copy text in a shot or while using the camera. Thanks to Live Text, you can even use Spotlight to search for text in Photos. This feature allows users to use a camera to recognize and copy text from videos. It’s Apple’s proprietary OCR technology and was previously only limited to screenshots, photos, camera shots, and other similar tasks. This functionality is only available on iPhones equipped with A12 processor or higher, iPhone XS and higher, iPad Pro 2020 and higher, iPad Mini 5th generation, iPad Air 2019 or higher, iPad 2020.

Live Text is currently only available to developers; this feature is only available in iOS 16 beta and will generally not be available until the official release of iOS 16.

But this feature when released with iOS 15 was just the beginning. The ability to reach its full potential is still under development, and iOS 16 also allows you to copy text from a video. It can be very useful to copy large amounts of text from a video. You don’t need to take screenshots of different frames of the movie to get the text. Plus, now that Apple is giving the feature to developers, you should soon be able to extract text from a video from popular third-party apps. The Live Text function can be used via Map to copy the address.
