HOLIDAYMAKERS not wanting to look like a tourist when they next go away can do so thanks to a very clever iPhone trick.
There are lots of secret functions that iPhones have, which most people have never heard of.
And there is one for travellers who like to explore a foreign city without a guidebook in hand.
The iPhone's Visual Look Up function on the Photos app lets you find out everything you need to know about a tourist attraction.

Siri then identifies it and tells you everything you need to know about it – without the need for a tour guide or having to Google it.

The phone's camera app is capable of looking up and translating text that appears within the camera frame too.
