Easy iPhone hack is sending TikTok wild – and you've probably never used it | The Sun

YOUR iPhone is packed with features but one is sending TikTok users into a frenzy even though it's been around for a while now.

Smartphone lovers can't believe the power of iPhone's Live Text tool – and how sneaky it is.

The feature allows anyone to use their camera to instantly scan text from any physical surface and copy it.

It can significantly cut down the amount of time it takes you to note things down – especially long things.

So if you see a poster with info you want to note down, or even a sign, whip your iPhone out and the camera app will do the hard work for you.

But a viral video has shown how it could be misused as well.
