What's New in Genius Scan 7.16 >


Improved Text Recognition

Genius Scan can now rely on Apple Vision as a text recognition engine, leading to much faster and more accurate text recognition. Genius Scan still offers support for all the languages that Apple Vision doesn't support yet. The switch will be transparent.

Curvature Correction

Genius Scan introduces curvature correction, which lets you correct the curvature of documents, especially when you scan books. The option is available by tapping the Edit button on any scanned document and then toggling the curvature correction option.

Only show documents when importing scans from your Photos

When importing images from your photos, you can now only display photos that look like documents. This AI-based feature can save you much time when importing scans from your photos.

Genius Scan adds another cleverness to this feature: it will only crop and enhance the document if it looks like an uncropped or unprocessed document.


- Improved the design of the informative banners displayed at the top of the document list and in various places in the app.

- Multiple performance and design enhancements to the image picker.

Bug fixes

- Fix Genius Scan widget display on iOS 17.

- Added ability to cancel setting a PIN password.

- Fix a potential crash when exporting to WebDAV.

- Fix a few crashes.

- Fix an issue which could cause a page to be stuck without text recognition.

Genius Scan now requires iOS 16 minimum.
