New iOS Adds Augmented Reality Features

Apple took the wraps off new iOS 11, the operating system that will power the next iPhone as well as current and some past iPhone models, previewing new augmented reality features and a redesigned App Store at the company’s annual developers conference, according to Bloomberg.

iOS 11 upgrades focused on augmented reality, with a new service called ARKit that helps outside developers integrate this technology into their apps. On stage, Apple software executive Craig Federighi used an iPhone’s camera to project a 3-D rendering of a living room onto a big screen.

Phil Schiller, Apple’s marketing chief, announced a redesigned App Store, getting huge applause from the developers in the crowd. There’s a new "Today" view to show new apps, a space to show off new games, a new tab for non-gaming applications. Each app will also get its own page that developers can customize.

For the Apple Watch, the company introduced new health and music features, plus new watch faces, including one that uses Siri to display pertinent information, like appointments, across the day. Refreshed Apple TV software added Amazon’s Prime Video service as an app.
