A video of a student copying or stealing notes in a class with the help of Apple’s iOS 15 Live Text OCR feature has gone viral on social media.
While Apple’s competitor Alphabet already offers similar functionality through Google Lens, Apple has integrated the new feature deep into iOS 15 through the camera and photos apps.
“It’s funny when iOS users praise a new feature that Android users have been using for years,” one user tweeted below the comments where the video was posted.
The ‘iOS 15 note theft video’ was first posted by a French student on TikTok.
TikTok user Yann Bernillie’s (@YannBernillie) video has reached over a million views and has been shared over a thousand times, at the time of writing, on the Chinese video platform.
