With the release of the ARKit toolkit, it became apparent that for Apple, augmented reality is not a simple toy, but a technology with which the company ties its future. Therefore, it is quite logical that Fast Company published a message that the new iPhone will be equipped with components that will allow it to interact even better with this technology.
According to journalists, the so-called iPhone 8 will have a laser 3D sensor like VSCEL, which will allow the smartphone camera to better understand the depth of the surrounding space so that the software of augmented reality can more effectively display its content.
In addition, such a system, whose cost is 2 US dollars, should significantly accelerate the work of autofocusing when taking photos and videos on the iPhone. It is expected that this component will be installed not only on the rear but also on the front camera. This will allow not only to make more clear selfies but also to implement Apple’s decision related to the recognition of the faces of users.
Thus, it becomes even clearer why the next iPhone Tim Cook company decided to change the configuration of a dual rear camera from horizontal to vertical. Apparently, three-dimensional scanning of space will be performed better with this arrangement of lenses. And are you looking forward to the appearance of an improved Augmented Reality in the iPhone 8 or would you rather have Apple focus on increasing the battery capacity?
