How to disable Live Text on iPhone

Live Text was introduced in iOS 15. The feature makes text interactive in your photos so users can copy and paste, look up, and translate in Photos, Screenshot, Quick Look, Safari, and live previews straight from the Camera app.

For iOS users, the feature can be convenient if you want to copy text from your camera and share the data via messages, save it in the Notes app book an appointment, and more. However, it can cause annoyance for users who may be trying to edit an image or if they do not want to select text within a photo. Luckily, you can disable Live Text on your iPhone in a few simple steps.
