Some features of ARKit 3 will be restricted to A12 Bionic chip devices

Already a few special Apple events, the AR features are well featured. At the iOS 13 presentation this was no different, with Ma even announcing its next generation of augmented reality tools, the ARKit 3.

Some news from ARKit 3 include Motion Capture (which makes it possible to record body movements to reproduce them from another figure on the screen) and Multiple Face Tracking (which can track up to three faces simultaneously from the TrueDepth camera of the X, XS, XS Max, XR and 3rd generation iPad Pro).

Apple, however, has further restricted ARKit 3 new features that use the TrueDepth camera by making them available only to devices equipped with the processor. A12 Bionic and A12X Bionic (leaving iPhone X out of the picture) plus futures gadgetsof course.

In addition to the above features, another new feature of ARKit 3 that will be limited only to new generation iPhones and iPads is the People Occlusion, and the simultaneous use of the front and rear cameras.

While the first feature allows you to position both objects and people in the same space so that they seem to coexist and interact, the second allows devices to track the user's face and surrounding environment simultaneously; that is, they can interact with the AR content captured by the rear camera using only the face.

Other devices powered by the A12 Bionic chip, such as the 10.5-inch iPad Air and the iPad mini 5, launched in March, will also not enjoy the new features (despite being equipped with the A12 chip) due to the absence of the TrueDepth system. .

Will other features of the prosperous iOS 13 be restricted to only a few hardware models? We'll see
