What is AR and why you should try it




AR is the technology that blends digital content with the real world




AR stands for augmented reality, which means adding digital elements to your view of the real world. Unlike virtual reality (VR), which creates a completely artificial environment, AR enhances your existing environment with images, sounds, text, or animations. For example, you can see how a painting would look on your wall, or how a dinosaur would move in your backyard.


AR apps let you experience immersive and interactive scenarios on your iPhone or iPad




AR apps are applications that use AR technology to create engaging experiences for users. You can use your iPhone or iPad as a window to see and interact with virtual objects in your surroundings. You can also use touch, gestures, or voice commands to control the AR content. For example, you can tap to place furniture in your room, swipe to rotate it, or say "buy" to purchase it.


AR apps are available on the App Store and can be used with iOS 16 or later




Apple has the world's largest AR platform, with hundreds of millions of AR-enabled devices and thousands of AR apps on the App Store. You can find AR apps for various categories, such as games, education, entertainment, shopping, health, travel, and more. You can also use AR Quick Look to view AR content within Safari, Mail, Messages, Files, and other apps. To use AR apps, you need an iOS or iPadOS device with iOS 11 or later. However, some features may require iOS 16 or later.

How to find and download AR apps on iOS 16




Search for AR apps on the App Store using keywords or categories




The easiest way to find AR apps on the App Store is to use keywords or categories that relate to your interests. For example, you can search for "AR games", "AR education", "AR shopping", etc. You can also browse by categories such as "Augmented Reality" or "ARKit" to see a curated list of AR apps.


Look for the AR badge on the app icon or description




To identify if an app supports AR, look for the AR badge on the app icon or description. The badge is a white square with "AR" in black letters. It indicates that the app uses Apple's ARKit framework to create high-quality AR experiences. You can also read the app description or reviews to learn more about the app features and requirements.


Tap Get or the price to download and install the app




Once you find an AR app that you like, tap Get or the price to download and install it on your device. You may need to enter your Apple ID password or use Face ID or Touch ID to confirm the purchase. After the app is installed, you can find it on your Home Screen or App Library and launch it from there.


How to use AR apps on iOS 16




Launch the app and grant permission to access the camera and other sensors




To use an AR app, you need to launch it and grant permission to access the camera and other sensors on your device. The camera is essential for capturing the real-world environment and placing virtual objects on it. The other sensors, such as the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass, help track your device's position and orientation in space. You may also need to grant permission to access your microphone, photos, or location, depending on the app functionality.


Follow the app instructions to scan your surroundings and place virtual objects




After you launch the app and grant permission, you will see some instructions on how to use the app. Usually, you will need to scan your surroundings by moving your device around until you see a grid or dots on the screen. This indicates that the app has detected a flat surface where you can place virtual objects. Then, you can tap or drag on the screen to place the objects and adjust their size, position, or orientation. You can also move around to see the objects from different angles.


Interact with the AR content using touch, gestures, or voice commands




Once you have placed the virtual objects in your environment, you can interact with them using touch, gestures, or voice commands. For example, you can tap on an object to select it, pinch to zoom in or out, swipe to rotate it, or double-tap to delete it. You can also use gestures such as pointing, waving, or nodding to trigger actions or responses from the objects. Some apps may also support voice commands such as "play", "pause", "stop", or "record" to control the AR content.
