Apple's new iPad has built-in laser depth-scanner
Apple has announced its first mobile device to feature laser-scanning technology, which the firm says will aid augmented reality apps. The iPad Pro's Lidar scanner will allow the shape and location of objects in a room to be detected.
This should mean graphics and real-world views can be mixed together more accurately than before.
The announcement came via a press release rather than a media event, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Apple said the Lidar technology can also be used for measurement apps, to more accurately deduce a person’s height, for example, or the width of an object. #apple #iPad #ipadpro
