1000 Engineers are on the great feature of iPhone 8

1000 Engineers are on the great feature of iPhone 8
iPhone 8 is making quite a buzz all around the world and tech world is exploring all the single features and this time its AR.

iPhone 8 is expected to sport a bunch of significant changes, including an OLED all-screen display with improved 3D Touch and Touch ID sensor. Now, a fresh report reiterates Apple's AR efforts and claims that the company has dedicated as many as 1,000 engineers to just develop AR. Moreover, some form of augmented reality (AR) is also expected to be integrated into the iPhone 8 this year.

In his note, researcher Steven Milunovich says that 'Apple appears more interested in AR rather than virtual reality (VR) because the former connects people whereas the latter is often an isolating experience involving a headset that renders the user blind to the real world. AR, by contrast, takes the existing environment and adds a new layer of information to it. For instance, AR apps let you hold up a phone with images superimposed onto the real-world view is seen through the camera screen.'

The researchers also stated that the technology could be used in the next iPhone, which has been one of the many rumors floating around the web.


Tim Cook has long sung the praises of AR tech – notably declaring his love for it over its virtual reality cousin. Describing VR as isolating, he stated that "there's no substitute for human contact" – the kind that mixed-reality AR apps can accommodate.

A "significant portion of the population of developed countries, and eventually all countries, will have AR experiences every day," said Cook previously, so it's unlikely the Apple boss man will be wanting to miss a slice of that pie.

The iPhone 8 rumors are hotting up, from a curved OLED screen to the removal of the home button to facilitate even slimmer bezels.
