TechHow ToHow To Use Apple Translate App On iPhone: iOS15

In iOS 14, Apple introduced the Translate app with the voice translation feature that could translate text and voice commands. So even when your iPhone is running on iOS 14, you can translate the phrase as you speak into your preferred language. But with iOS 15 update, Apple’s Translate App has gotten even better with new updates such as auto-translate, face-to-face view, and system-wide translate.

In conversion mode, the previous version of the app could listen to the conversation on both sides translate them in real-time. But you had to tap the microphone before speaking from your side to get your conversation translated. The person on the other end was also required to tap the microphone before speaking their part.

But with the inclusion of the Auto-Translate feature on iOS 15, you no longer need to tap the microphone button to get your part of the conversation translated. This means there is no need to interact with the iPhone to use the translate app. This will allow you to comfortably converse with anyone who understands a different language.
