A roundup of iOS 11 augmented reality apps

Augmented Reality (AR) support was one of the most notable features of iOS 11, which is compatible with iPhone 6s and newer. With iPad, it requires an iPad Pro (9.7″, 10.5″, or 12.9″) or the latest 5th generation iPad.

iOS 11 introduces ARKit, a new framework that allows you to easily create unparalleled augmented reality experiences for iPhone and iPad. By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways.

iOS 11 has been on the market for a few months now, so we thought we’d take a look at a few of the hottest AR apps. Do you have any to add? Let us know via @thesweetsetup on Twitter.
