Munster: Apple could use augmented reality in iOS 9
posted by Alan F. / Sep 01, 2015, 6:29 PM
This isn't the first time this year that Munster has discussed Apple's plans for AR. Back in March, Munster told clients that Apple had put together a small team to explore the use of augmented reality. At that time, Munster was quoted as saying that AR could be "as profound a technology platform as the smartphone today."
There is speculation that Apple is going to use augmented reality for Apple Maps. Users would be able to open the Maps application and point their camera at a business or a point of interest that they are interested in. An overlay would appear on the screen with information about that particular location.
So far, there has been no indication from Apple that AR will be a part of iOS 9.

Juses F**ing Christ... read the article, apple is not doing anything just hiring people from other companies that have experience in the field and devouring some other companies so they will do the job for them. you are implying that copying is a bad practice while your favorite company is just doing it as you can read in articel. stop being a religous fanboy... another thing to mention is that this feature is already in some apps on both platforms.

Title Headline "Apple could use augmented reality in iOS 9". Sentence at the end of Article "So far, there has been no indication from Apple that AR will be a part of iOS 9." It does get clicks though.

A lot of copy work for Samsung (ps. Samsung means for me any Android phone since there is no difference between them, running the same garbage OS).
