ARKit is one of Apple’s biggest new features, and considering it has a huge potential in games on mobile devices, it would make sense that Apple might want to bring as many developers into the mix as possible.
Apple announced ARKit with iOS 11 last year. The augmented reality platform was created for the developers to come up with new and attractive features that could enhance our lives significantly. Apple updated ARKit to version 1.5 last week, which has been seeding to the developers with the iOS 11.3 beta. Developers have now shared their work on social media, showcasing the improvements Apple has made with ARKit 1.5.
Augmented Reality (AR) saw its first big grab at the public consciousness with the launch of Pokémon GO, but the developer behind the popular game was only chipping away at the tip of the iceberg in terms of features and playability.
Using a smartphone or tablet to expand the experience of a real-world scenario isn’t new, but there is no denying Apple’s new augmented reality (AR) effort, built upon by ARKit, is certainly broadening the results.

Tim Cook has never been shy when it comes to talking about augmented reality (AR), or how important he thinks the technology is.
The first wave of ARKit apps and games have hit the new App Store in iOS 11. As this is still week one of what Apple hopes will be a revolution in gaming, there are only handful of awesome AR games in the App Store. We’re sure we’ll see more interesting AR gameplay in the coming months.
During Apple’s September event, Apple executive Phil Schiller took some time to talk about a few key augmented reality (AR) features, which iOS 11 users would be able to enjoy on their devices thanks to the rollout of ARKit.

In September, Apple is going to dive right into the augmented reality market with ARKit, which it initially announced earlier this year.
