For dog owners, wanting to learn about their dog breed when they are out and about is a normal, if not everyday, thing. There are so many different pedigrees and mixes for good boys and good girls that even experienced owners can’t always tell what type of dog they are looking for.
One feature that, in my opinion, makes the iPhone 13 Pro Max one of the best phones out there is that it solves this very problem. With Visual Look Up for iPhone, you can quickly and easily identify the breed of any dog from a single photo. It’s a great companion when you discover an amazing companion you’ve never seen before.
You don’t need to have the latest iPhone to use Visual Look Up – it works on any iPhone with an A12 Bionic chip or later. This means that if you have an iPhone XR or later and your phone has been upgraded to iOS 15, you can take advantage of Visual Look Up. (Visual Look Up is also part of iOS 16, and gains new capabilities in a software update arriving this fall.)
As a caveat, iVisual Look Up isn’t 100% fool-proof, especially when taking pictures of dogs from weird angles or when they’re pulling off weird faces. And the advantage you may not get your mixed heritage puppy breeds is quite right either.
The Visual Look Up is very reliable, although it has been able to correctly identify greyhounds and other dogs of our family almost all of the time. He also suggests other similar breeds that could match the profile of the dog(s) in the photo, which puts you in the right playing field even if you suspect that Visual Look Up hasn’t quite worked out the exact breed.
As a second warning, an appropriate level of caution should be maintained while taking pictures of dogs outside. Don’t get too close to a dog that seems uncomfortable around you or gives warning signals such as growling or snarling. You should also act respectfully when it comes to taking photos that include people – to avoid confrontation, always ask for permission if your photo will include dog owners and/or their families.
With that apart, here’s how to identify a dog breed using your iPhone.
