Apple added a new feature called Visual Look Up in iOS 15 last year.

It allowed you to identify objects, places, animals and even plants in photos you took.

Now the feature has been massively updated in iOS 16 to identify a much wider range of objects and creatures.

“Visual Look Up adds bird, insect, spider, and statue detection to your photos,” Apple explains.

The feature uses machine learning to give you information about what you’re watching.

However, to get the latest version, you need to update to iOS 16.

To do this, go to Settings > General > Software update.

To use Visual Look Up, you must first take a photo of something that can be identified.

If you want to test it, try to get a picture of a spider from the internet – or take a picture in your house or garden if you prefer.

Then open the image in your Photos app and look at the bottom.

If it worked, the little “i” icon should have two little stars in the top left corner.

This means Visual Look Up is available for the image.

Either swipe up on the photo or tap the icon to activate Visual Look Up.

Now tap the icon at the top of the photo info window to learn more about the topic.

Once you’ve snatched a spider, you should see an indicator for the species.

Usually, this will direct you to a Wikipedia page to see if you have a regular house spider — or something more exotic and maybe even dangerous.

Of course, you shouldn’t rely solely on Visual Look Up.

Ultimately, it’s just an educated guess – so there’s a chance that Visual Look Up might be wrong.

Your chances are always better when the image is large, clear, and bright.

But remember, Visual Look Up works with a lot more than spiders.

You can use it to identify people, places, animals, flowers and other plants, birds, insects, spiders, and statues.
