3D camera will have the ability to scan real-world objects to create three-dimensional models. The model can be used in various applications, including entertainment.
The key feature of the new cameras will support entirely new types of interaction with real world objects in augmented reality. Users will be able to restore the iPhone camera at objects and get different information.
