Pro Tip: Detect doors using Magnifier on iPhone

With iOS16, you can use the Magnifier app to detect doors around you, help you understand how far you are from a door, how to open the door, and get a description of the door’s attributes. When doors are detected nearby, you’re notified with sounds, speech, or haptic feedback. The feedback becomes more frequent as you get closer to a door.

How to detect doors around you

  • Go to Magnifier

  • Tap the 4-cornered icon on the right

  • Then tap the door icon

  • Position your iPhone so the rear camera can detect doors around you

  • You're supposed to hear a sound or speech feedback - if not, make sure your device has silent mode turned off

  • When you’re finished, tap End to return to the Magnifier screen
