New York, Dec 29, 2016: Did you know your iPhone photo app has the potential to search photos and tag both people and objects? If your phone runs on iOS 10, it definitely can.
The app conducts the search locally, rather than using the Cloud.
NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.
“Both Google and Apple’s services use ‘computer vision’ to detect what’s in photos. But on the iPhone it’s incredibly easy to pick a subject, let’s say ‘cats’ and search your photo library for images that feature a cat,” Fortune reported on Wednesday.
To save you on battery, iOS only does this when the phone is charging. Whenever you capture a new image, Apple’s Image Signal Processor is able to detect objects and people, and will then look them up against its inbuilt database.

To try this hidden feature, open the Photos app and tap on the search magnifying glass. Users can tell Apple Photos who appears in your images and it should then be able to look and identify those people again. (IANS)
To make its devices more gaming-centric, Apple may add quick and ultra-smooth displays to its 2020 line-up of iPhones, for which the company is currently in discussion with Samsung and LG.
Both LG and Samsung are known to be the two biggest suppliers of smartphone AMOLED displays in the world.
“Apple is considering a switchable 60Hz/120Hz refresh rate screen on the iPhone in 2020, and is discussing with Samsung and LG,” a reliable Apple tipster, Ice Universe, tweeted on Sunday.
By “switchable 60Hz/120Hz”, it is presumed that next year’s iPhones would be able to switch to a 60Hz refresh rate whenever static images are displayed in order to conserve battery, Tech Radar reported.
If true, this would not be the first time that the iPhone-maker would be releasing mobile devices with 120Hz displays.
Lacking the OLED screen technology and supporting the LED Retina ProMotion displays, all of Apple’s 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPads released since 2017 boasted ultra-fast refresh rates.
The OLED screens come with several benefits such as individually-lit pixels, perfect blacks and low power consumption.
More details about the screen technology Apple plans on using for its 2020 iPhones remain undisclosed as of now.
