Apple's iOS 14 brings augmented reality (AR) to your iPhone in a number of exciting ways. The new operating system features ARKit 4, which offers improved performance and new capabilities for creating immersive AR experiences. Some of the ways iOS 14 brings AR to your iPhone include:
AR Quick Look: With AR Quick Look, you can view and interact with AR models in the real world through your iPhone's camera. This feature is available in Safari, so you can easily view AR models of products before you buy them online.
ARKit 4: ARKit 4 introduces new capabilities for creating more realistic and immersive AR experiences, including location anchors that allow AR content to be placed in specific real-world locations.
App Clips: App Clips are lightweight versions of apps that can be launched quickly and easily from within other apps or from the web. With iOS 14, App Clips can include AR content, so you can experience AR without having to download a full app.
Measure app: The Measure app in iOS 14 now includes a new AR mode that allows you to measure the height of people with your iPhone's camera. This can be useful for things like measuring someone's height for a costume or fitting them for clothing.
Overall, iOS 14 brings augmented reality to your iPhone in new and exciting ways, making it easier than ever to experience immersive AR content on the go.
In addition to the features mentioned earlier, iOS 14 also includes other AR-related features and improvements that enhance the overall AR experience on your iPhone:
People Occlusion: This feature allows AR experiences to accurately place virtual objects behind and in front of people in the real world. This creates a more realistic and immersive AR experience.
LiDAR Scanner: The latest iPhone models, including the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, feature a LiDAR scanner that provides accurate depth information for AR experiences. This allows for more realistic and precise placement of virtual objects in the real world.
AR-enabled games: With iOS 14, game developers can create AR-enabled games that blend virtual and real-world elements. For example, you could play a game that involves placing virtual objects in your physical environment or interacting with virtual characters that appear in your real-world surroundings.
