How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.



iPhone SE 2 Release Date, Price & Specification Rumours

iPhone SE 2 Release Date, Price & Specification Rumours
This is our first proper look at the upcoming iPhone SE 2, a render leaked by phone case- and screen protector maker Olixar, which is becoming quite a well-known source for leaks.

We've been waiting for a proper update to the iPhone SE for what feels like forever, and with Apple's iPhones increasingly getting larger and more expensive it's an upgrade consumers have been crying out for. It's now the only 4in iPhone you can buy direct from Apple, and prices start at just £349/US$349.

Prolific Apple tipster and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities recently said that Apple doesn't have the resources to make an iPhone SE 2 right now, and a new report from Macotakara suggests mass production has not yet started and that the iPhone SE 2 won't launch until September.

Of course, a whole load of recent leaks seem to suggest otherwise, and Apple has just sent out invites to its WWDC keynote.

Consomac has revealed a regulatory filing in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database that concerns new iPhone model numbers A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106, none of which are part of its existing line-up.

We saw the same thing in May 2017 with the MacBooks that were then announced at WWDC 2017, which suggests June's WWDC 2018 could indeed see a new iPhone launch.

When is the iPhone SE 2 release date?
Fuelling the rumours that an iPhone SE 2 will launch imminently is the fact the original iPhone SE was announced on 21 March 2016, and then re-released with some hardware improvements on 24 March 2017. The timing is bang on. If we are to assume that an iPhone SE 2 is indeed in the making, we see two potential launch dates.

First, WWDC 2018. It's scheduled to take place on 4 June 2018 (with the keynote starting at 6pm BST/10am PDT), and though it's traditionally a developer conference it is also often the launch ground for new hardware. This is where our money is for now.

Second is the annual September event for which the new iPhone headlines, and that's where Macotakara is pointing for the iPhone SE 2 launch. But with Apple wanting to focus everyone's attention on the flagship, it's unlikely to announce a smaller, cheaper phone that could compete with it on sales.

According to the Economic Daily News the iPhone SE 2 was scheduled to enter production in Q1 2018.
How much will the iPhone SE 2 cost?
Apple typically tries to keep its pricing constant when releasing new models, so we'd expect the new iPhone SE 2 to come in at £349/$349.

However, given that the iPhone SE 2 might see some significant upgrades, we might also see a price rise of between £50 and £100.

Will the iPhone SE 2 be an iPhone X SE?
Since Apple announced its iPhone X in September every product the company sells (or will soon sell) has been tipped to get the 'X' treatment. This has led to rumours of an iPad Pro X, and an iPhone X SE, among others.

Let's remember, though, that the 'X' in iPhone X really means ten. It's already a 'special-edition' phone brought in to commemorate the iPhone's 10-year anniversary. To create an iPhone X SE would be to create a special-edition version of a special-edition phone that is not yet 10 years old. Insane, right? Perhaps we should call it iPhone 2 SE SE.

But what Apple could potentially do is apply some of the design changes we saw in the iPhone X to other products in its line-up. So this could well be the end of chunky screen bezels on Apple products - and the beginning of the age of the notch. We certainly hope so, for the former at least.

What are the rumoured features and specifications of the iPhone SE 2?

The iPhone SE 2, if and when it arrives, will likely see some of the design changes we've seen in recent iPhones. It could well have an all-screen front with that infamous 'notch' design, along with a glass rear panel and Qi wireless charging, and it will more than likely come without a headphone jack but a Lightning adaptor in the box. The latter has been confirmed by the leaked renders from Olixar.

BGR has published sketches of what is said to be the iPhone SE and iPhone SE 2 side by side, which it received from a previously reliable source. If genuine, the notch would appear to be here to stay.

Specifications are tipped to be very much iPhone 7-standard, with the A10 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32- or 128GB of storage, 12Mp and 5Mp cameras and a 1,700mAh battery, but the same 4in screen. Apple is expected to cut down costs by dropping 3D Touch.
