The best Augmented Reality apps from the new App Store


With the launch of iOS 11, Apple has turned hundreds of millions of iPhone into augmented reality devices thanks to the support of a new developer framework called ARKit. With this technology, iOS developers can more easily create AR experiences for users on compatible iPhone and iPad, using cameras, processors and motion sensors built into each device.
As of now, the first wave of these applications is available to download and test on the iOS 11 App Store. Early applications range from game upgrades to everyday day-to-day tools and even apps that promote a healthier lifestyle.
Please note that to use ARKit-enabled applications on iOS 11 you must have an iOS device with an A9, A10 or new A11 processor . This means that ARKit applications can be launched on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the next iPhone X.
For iPads, you can use the iPad of 9.7 inches or the iPad of 10.5 inches and 12.9 inches. The old 9.7-inch model of the iPad Pro is also compatible. Go to the new App Store and check out some of the ARKit apps listed below to see how Apple's new augmented reality technology works in your own home.

Splitter Critters
-What is it about? Use finger touches to split a colorful landscape and guide alien creatures back to their spaceship, avoiding enemies and solving puzzles in the process.

Edmunds
-What is it about? Buy new and used cars within the vehicle's extensive vehicle application database.

Fitness AR
-What is it about? The new Fitness AR application synchronizes with Strava, giving you access to new ways to track your workouts, cycling sessions and more.
-How is AR used? With Fitness AR, you can connect your Strava account to track the hiking, cycling or running routes you have made, which can be viewed in AR on a 3D terrain map. There is also a gallery of walks and tours that you can explore from places around the world such as Yosemite Valley and Mont Ventoux .
Night Sky 5
-What is it about? The night sky is a "personal planetarium" , which allows you to identify stars, planets, constellations and satellites with an iOS device.
-How is AR used? With iOS 11, the application has enhanced its existing AR capabilities with a new "Grand Orrery" premium feature (which requires a subscription). This mode brings the solar system to your home so you can walk around it, get close to the planets, see the current space missions in the system and much more.

What's coming

Well luckily a lot. Apple has decided to bet on this technology and developers seem to have taken the witness. We will see more and more applications that implement this new world of possibilities .
