30+ iOS 11 ARKit Compatible Apps Worth Checking Out [List]
Here is a list of 30+ iOS 11 ARKit compatible apps that are well worth checking out on your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device.
iOS 11 is now on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you’ve interacted with some of the new features and checked out some of the design changes, but what do you do now? Well, we have you covered now with this growing list of 30+ apps which are currently live on the App Store offering compatibility with Apple’s amazing new ARKit technology.
So, just what is ARKit we hear you ask? ARKit is essentially the name from Apple’s in-house custom built augmented reality framework which is offered to third-party developers to allow them to build cutting-edge and highly enjoyable apps which augment what’s possible in the real world without any specialized sensors on the device being a requirement. First introduced back at the beginning of June at this year’s WWDC, ARKit compatibility is offered on any device with an internal A9, A10, or A11 chipset running iOS 11. And of course, it also supports iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the list of ARKit compatible apps which are currently on our radar and are live on the App Store:
AR – Tower
AR Drone Commander Lite
AR Sports Basketball
ARuler – Measure Distances
Complete Anatomy 2018 +Courses
Cubit – AR Measuring Toolbox
GIPHY World: AR GIFs+Stickers
Human Anatomy Atlas 2018
Kings of Pool
Money X2 – AR Personal & Business Budget Tracker
PCalc – The Best Calculator
Sky Guide AR
TapMeasure – AR utility
Thomas & Friends Mini
Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade
The above is by no means an exhaustive list of the apps out there which offer ARKit-based functionality. These are simply the ones that are on our radar currently, meaning that the list will inevitably grow over time so make sure you keep checking back. It’s also highly likely that there are more developers working on highly complex ARKit apps which have yet to see the light of day. We can expect to see Apple making a big deal of apps which implement this new framework, meaning it’s a great time for discovery if you’re a developer who has embraced the tech.
If you are an everyday device owner, then check out the apps above, which are offered across a wide range of genres, and find something that suits your needs or appeals to your sense of entertainment.
