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.

Check out NewsGram for latest international news updates.

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)

Apple is likely to launch new iPads and Mac computer lineup on October 30 at an event in Brooklyn, the media reported.

Apple sent at least two versions of its invite. One, colourful with sketched of images of people, buildings and other items, possibly indicating a new Apple Pencil or other artistic features, CNET reported on Thursday.

The other, a black and white that appeared to be water droplets, which could mean the new iPads may be water resistant, the report added.

According to the report, the new iPad Pros would get bigger displays and lose the “Touch ID” fingerprint-sensing home button in favour of Apple’s “Face ID” facial-recognition technology.

The tablets may also have USB-C connectivity, as well as updated Apple Pencil styluses. The company might finally redesign its popular but outdated $999 MacBook Air.

In September, Apple unveiled its new “iPhone XS”, “XS Max” and “XR” phones during a launch at the Steve Jobs Theater on its new campus in Cupertino, California.

The company also updated its Apple Watch with a slimmer design.
