Safari Translations in iOS 14 Rolling Out to More Countries
Apple is reportedly expanding access to a new iOS 14 feature that enables users to translate webpages in Safari.
Introduced with iOS 14 in September, the feature lets users translate foreign language webpages natively in Safari by tapping on the "aA" icon in the address bar. The button, initially implemented to control page font size, has now become a catchall menu for native Safari functions including website settings and privacy reports.
The Safari capability was restricted to U.S. users at launch, but has since expanded to other countries the release of iOS 14.2 on Thursday. According to 9to5Mac, the feature is now live in Brazil and Germany. Other countries might also see the translation function roll out in the coming days.
Safari translations should not be confused with the Translate app. Apple with iOS 14 also introduced a standalone Translate app that integrates text and voice translations into a clean user interface. The system is capable of translating between Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Both Safari translations and the Translation app support the above eleven languages.
