A BIG new update on your iPhone will make driving a lot less stressful.
The tech giant is updating its Visual Look Up tool in the upcoming iOS 17 update.
The tool can already identify popular landmarks, statues, art, plants, pets and more in photos.
But Apple has confirmed that it will soon recognize icons.
“Now users can identify foods, storefronts, signs and symbols, and highlight individual subjects from photos and videos,” they explained.
That means the app will recognize the warning lights that pop up on your car’s dashboard that you probably don’t know.
Drivers would only have to take a picture of their car’s dashboard, open it – and they’ll see an icon on the picture.
Next you need to swipe the photo or tap the icon – and Siri will recognize the icons and tell you what they mean.
However, drivers would have to wait a few months for this update as it is expected to come out in September this year. The Daily Mail reports.
Apple is also rolling out a new tool called Screen Distance that will monitor where your iPhone is in relation to your face – and warn you if it’s too close.
Apple stated, “Increasing the distance from which the device is viewed can help children reduce the risk of myopia and gives adult users the opportunity to reduce digital eyestrain.”
“Screen Distance in Screen Time leverages the TrueDepth camera to encourage users to move their device further away after holding it closer than 12 inches from their face for an extended period of time.”
This comes after Apple unveiled a free upgrade to a popular iPhone app that could save you from a car trip nightmare.
Also, millions of iPhone owners may be missing out on an ingenious feature for drivers.
