Apple’s ARKit 2 will now support multiplayer #Apple #ARKit
Apple announced the next generation of ARKit earlier this year. ARKit 2 introduces us to a new multiplayer mode for AR games and another mode that allows for virtual objects to be placed in an area and remain in place.
The first ARKit instantly turned hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads into AR-compatible machines and users could suddenly add digital objects onto the real world – with the right applications, of course.

•Improved Face Tracking
•3D Object Detection
