Yesterday at WWDC – Apple’s yearly developers conference - the latest iteration of ARKit was announced, following suit of Google’s ARCore update early last month. It was at last year’s WWDC that we got a first look at ARKit and over the past year, there has been a lot of improvements and additional features to the platform. What is ARKit? The ARKit is an augmented reality SDK for IOS devices from Apple.
Google I/O - AR Core Improvements The big announcement that we are excited about is the Cloud Anchor Capability. Now we can share digital/augmented workspaces with others. Essentially this paves the way for shared AR experiences. You can tag items in your surroundings sharing these tags with friends and thanks to this new ability you will be able to redecorate your home together, explore an augmented museum together or even play tic-tac-toe.
