Speculating the new iPhone’s features has been a tradition for Apple fans and analysts. Some expect the iPhone 8 will be priced over $1,000 with the most advanced features.

Rumors are already buzzing around a new OLED screen and an edge-to-edge display, but these are not the most surprising features. It turns out that Apple’s secret weapon is very likely to be an augmented reality feature. An insider source claims that Apple is developing a 3D laser system that can detect information about what’s in front of the iPhone as the user points at certain subjects.

The iPhone 8’s augmented reality feature will allow users to do more than just playing Pokémon Go. The laser system will improve the phone’s camera even further, making it much faster and more accurate. Some believe that even the front-facing camera will feature AR capability so users can take better selfies.

Some developers already revealed cool things with Apple’s ARKit, an open-source AR development software. For example, a France-based agency developed a virtual portal that leads to a jungle in the middle of an urban area. You can ͞step through͟ the door with your phone and move around.

Apple is also developing smart eye glasses that will incorporate AR technology. We can expect to see some exciting innovations from Apple in the next year or two!
