Apple is Working on Augmented Reality to Guide You Across Your City
“This blog is for those readers, who are interested to know about Apple’s secret work on Augmented Reality. Readers will know how Apple can guide them across their city using Augmented Reality.”
Many of you all know that Apple’s ARKit is the biggest change in iOS 11, which is the next-generation iOS platform. Now, the company is planning to transform the entire iPhone into the most advanced Augmented Reality device.
The AR revolution will not come with a boom but a tape measure. It seems like a lesson so far from ARKit, which is Apple’s advanced AR platform.
Felix Lapalme has been watching at assets in the Maps app package in order to search whether the company will leverage Augmented Reality for turn-by-turn directions. Last month, he looks around a beta version of iOS 11 and gets to know about this secretive 3D arrow for the Maps application.
Now, you might be thinking that Apple will use the arrow for old turn-by-turn directions on top of a map like in traditional navigation applications. However, some of the code will let you tilt your phone in front of your face when you are using walking directions.
Along with it, it seems that the Apple’s Maps application will make use of your device’s camera. There is a big chance of this feature, which could be shipped with the iPhone 8.
Apple has declared its plans that it will add detailed maps of airports, malls, etc. in iOS 11 so that users can get a guide around their city. The company is planning to ship iPhone and iOS 11 in the upcoming month (September).
Now, you will get surprised when Apple will declare some of its features that allow you to walk across your city whether it is an airport, nearest mall or any coffee shop using Augmented Reality. It appears that this application developed by Andrew Hart, a developer who has been playing across with new frameworks:
It wouldn’t be the first time that the Apple’s iPhone will redefine a medium by making a more modest option. Apple had already redefined the videogame industry that was conquered by exclusive and complex console game until the iPhone announced the concept of low-stakes casual games like Candy Crush Saga.
Now, the company again will revolutionize the industry using Augmented Reality and give users more power in their devices. Even various augmented reality app development companies have started developing AR apps, comprising advanced features.
