Apple’s iOS 11.3 ARKit uses a VIO technology, which tracks the whole world with a unique precision and allows for stable motion tracking. It has integrated the camera sensors with CoreMotion which in turn enables the device to sense movements perfectly. The new iOS 11.3 ARKit is a developer toolset and Apple has promised it to be the largest AR platform.
Now, what’s unique about ARKit is that it simply requires you to have the latest IOS device, unlike Google’s Tango phones. Though, the Tango phone with its acute awareness of 3-D space allows for a high degree of accurate measurement, it requires additional hardware.
As revealed by Apple, iOS 11.3 ARKit will have these following features: fast and stable motion tracking, which in simple terms, will make any object look like it is placed in a real live space. It will also have plane estimation with basic boundaries, X code App templates, scale estimation and also ambient lighting estimation.

From measuring objects with an impressive accuracy to making navigation exceptionally easier, the ARKit is a brilliant technology promising a brighter and a smarter future.
iOS 11.3 ARKit: A Game Changer?!
AR technology has been in the market for many years now, but Apple’s entry is probably the most significant thing that happened in the realm of AR .What makes Apple ARKit different from its competitors is it accessibility. Unlike Google’s Tango, which is only available on devices that have the Tango hardware installed in them, and Microsoft’s HoloLens, which is very expensive (priced at $3000), Apple’s ARKit will be available on both iPads and iPhones. ARKit is incredibly simple to use. It uses the camera already installed on the iPhone or iPad and does not require any special hardware. Apple is making AR for devices that are already owned by millions of people. In addition to that Apple also plans to release air glasses which will enhance the entire AR experience. It is also working on a chip called The Apple Neural Engine which will handle all Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AR related tasks and improve the AR experience. Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, has stated that Artificial Intelligence and augmented reality are the ‘two core pillars’ of Apple. Both technologies will allow Apple to pave the way for self-driving cars easier map navigations and more advanced AR games, etc.
The ARKit has promised a revolution of the Augmented Reality. Consider all the cool stuff you can do with this tool. From a real life like game play to measuring things with an impressive accuracy, the ARKit makes everything easier and fun.
