As bloggers and working for the marketing team, I often use reverse image search to find out the actual legitimacy of the image before I use it for the marketing campaign. Currently, there is no official feature on iPhone to do reverse image searches.
People are using Google Image desktop UI on iPhone to do reverse images search. While exploring some Siri shortcuts on iOS 14, I land on the reverse image search iPhone shortcut. I was not aware of this feature before, but it was a huge surprise and productive. The significant thing about this shortcut is that it takes only a couple of clicks to get the result. I am excited to share the process of using the Reverse image Search Shortcut on iPhone.
