I recently saw a comment online by a user who said that it was possible to open URLs from screenshots of text that contained URL data. This seems like an attractive function for me, as some sites I visit allow users to post text that are not clickable.
I screenshotted a URL as a test, and cropped it so that all that was visible in the screenshot was the URL, however when I opened the photo in the Photos app on my Iphone, there didn't seem to be an option to use the photo as a hyperlink.
Is there a way to open URLs from screenshots on iOS natively, or is another application needed to do this?
Running iOS 15.7.6 on Iphone 7
EDIT - The accepted answer explains that this feature is not supported natively for users with older phones, however I am still open to hearing about free apps that will detect text from images and convert to text.
