With iOS 17, iPhones gain the capability to decode icons on clothing tags and even feature a scanner for washing machine dashboards.
Another reason to buy an iPhone or upgrade to a new iOS. Updated iOS 17 Photos will be able to recognize the inscriptions on clothing tags. The function works simply: point the camera at the marking and your iPhone itself determines and translates the characters. The feature will help you find out the washing temperature, bleaching recommendations, dryer mode, and much more.
The iPhone will provide an explanation for each character on the tag, clicking on the explanation can get more information from the website that Apple is sourcing. Apple obtains information for laundry instructions from the Online Browsing Platform that is run by the International Organization for Standardization.
Other features of the Photos app for iOS 17 include pet recognition, one-tap cropping, animated stickers made from Live Photos, recipe search based on food images, and more.
