Have you ever looked at a photo on your iPhone and wondered, "What kind of flower is that?", "What is that animal?" or  
"Where is that famous building?" 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Use Visual Look Up on your iPhone images.

Your iPhone has a hidden gem called Visual Look Up that can answer these questions and more.

Visual Look Up is like having a tiny encyclopedia inside your phone. 

It uses advanced image recognition to analyze your photos and provide information from the web and Apple's Siri Knowledge database.

Here's how to use Visual Look Up on your iPhone:
  1. Open the Photos app and find the image you want to analyze.
  2. Tap the "Info" button (it looks like a lowercase "i" inside a circle).
  3. Look for a sparkle icon next to the Info button. If you see it, Visual Look Up can identify something in your photo!
  4. Tap the sparkle icon, and then tap "Look Up".
  5. Tap the results to learn more.
Visual Look Up puts information at your fingertips, making it a great tool for travelers, students, or anyone with a curious mind.

The feature's accuracy depends on how clearly the object is depicted in your photograph.

Let's see it in action! 

Imagine you're hiking in the Mexican jungle and come across an animal. 

With Visual Look Up, you can find out if it's potentially dangerous
