How iOS 17 improves Visual Look-Up
In a blog post, the company explains that Visual Look Up can identify and learn about popular landmarks, plants, pets and more that appear in photos and videos in the Photos app on iPhones. The Visual Look-Up feature can also identify food in a photo and suggest related recipes. With the latest update, the feature will also be able to identify if something is wrong with your car.

The iPhone maker hasn’t officially mentioned all the upgrades added to the feature but Visula Look Up can now identify icons ranging from warning lights to those symbols like vents, heating and more.
According to a report by 9to5Mac, the feature can identify multiple symbols and icons in the same picture. After identifying the symbols, iOS 17 will provide Visual Look Up with quick links to learn more about each symbol in
Safari. The feature will give users the name of the icon and a short description of what it means directly in the Photos app.
The report claims that Visual Look Up with iOS 17 was able to identify a wide array of symbols which includes — dashboard warning lights, climate control symbols, headlight options and more.
How to access Visual Look Up on iOS 17

In the case of auto symbols, this icon will look like a steering wheel. Users can also tap on the “i” icon if the steering wheel symbol doesn’t automatically appear.
