While the focus lines on iPhones with deep sensing, rear-facing cameras 2019 have already been established, a new report adds some idea that the iPhone will receive new AR super-power later this year.
Quote Anonymous sources familiar with company plans, Bloomberg reports that Apple is already testing its new three-camera rear camera set that is expected to reach the 2019 iPhone models. These sources also note that Apple's taste of deep scan will use lasers instead of the current "dot-projection" method.
In 2017, Apple invested $ 390 million in Finisar, the company that produces these lasers. On its website, Finisar distinguishes the ability of its vertical surface treatment (VCSEL) technology to perform 3D feel and gesture recognition.
After the introduction of TrueDepth, which features features such as Animojis and ARKit's face tracking via the iPhone X, and then expand it to the iPhone X R (fulfills the prophecy of market analysts) is the expansion of the iPhone's 3D scanning capabilities not only a logical next step in the device's continued evolution, but also a reinforcement against enhanced reality clothing.
Between patent applications for smart glass, see through displays and gesture-controlled interfaces, acquisition of display manufacturers Akonia Holographics and headset manufacturers Vrvana, the composition of a team outside of experts and insider reports on the arrival of smartglasses engraved with "Designed by Apple in California" as soon as 2020 ( or maybe not until 2021), Apple works almost certainly with a few AR smartglasses.
Meanwhile, Apple will apparently continue to watch iPhone to drive AR in the hands of consumers until its smart glass is ready for the headlight.
