The launch of Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and likely iPhone X may wave the starter’s flag for augmented reality developers with a bevy of apps to follow.
The Apple iPhone 8 event will be the third installment of the company’s augmented reality push and there are a few key reasons to believe that AR will become mainstream. Among the key items to know:
- Apple’s iOS 11 will be rolled out broadly with new iPhone and the company doesn’t have the fragmentation that has hampered previous AR efforts.
- Developers make money with Apple and have been burned with experiments with AR and VR elsewhere.
