Pokémon GO will be among the apps that support Apple’s new advanced augmented reality tool, ARKit. During this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, the company showed off a brief demonstration of what ARKit might look like. ARKit will use “fast, stable motion tracking,” as well as scale estimation and ambient lighting estimation for a more immersive version of augmented reality.
In short, iOS users can expect a more realistic, better-looking style of the technology than what is currently on display in Pokémon GO. Apple didn’t specifically mention how Pokémon GO will work with ARKit, nor when the technology will launch. Apple’s current hardware doesn’t yet support the technology, however, so consumers will have to wait a bit longer for a more realistic version of Pokémon GO.
