Apple could soon be bringing augmented reality to its camera app. According to recent reports, the firm's goal for the project is to give users access to futuristic spatial recognition and mapping. Using augmented reality (AR), Apple would use the iPhone's advanced sensors to generate real-time views of the user's surroundings while superimposing digital information. Augmented reality in Apple's camera could enrich a live view of a city street with a map for directions, facts about nearby buildings, or add an animated video game character to the scene. At a conference in July, Apple CEO Tim Cook provided some insight on the firm's work in artificial intelligence and augmented reality.
