One of Apple's most appreciated (but rarely seen social media) apps, Clips, got an update on Wednesday.
The new update adds the app's previous movie-inspired environments that use iPhones TrueDepth camera system to allow a user to enter a 360 degree immersed environment while taking care of himself.
This time the app has added a scene from Pixar's The Incredibles 2 movie, featuring a special comedy view from the movie's lead character, Elastigirl. Other new backgrounds are a gritty scientist's lab à la Frankenstein (complete with lightning senses), a garden's garden environment, an old west coast city, a rainforest and a cloudy environment.
Each environment contains sound effects that match the depth setting, giving the filter an even more realistic effect.
But when using the app on an iPhone X, I noticed that after a few minutes, the app asked me to quit because the phone was overheated.
] It adds at least one data point to why the Clips app, widely recognized as impressive, failed to capture on with many users (if its absence from sharing social media is any indication).
If you're even willing to use a single overheating alert, the app is an incredible picture of Apple's software development. The Clip app (Version 2.0.5 update) is free and available to anyone using an iPhone or iPad Pro with a built-in TrueDepth camera.
