Plus, we debate FaceID and APFS, check in on HomeKit & search for the right level of abstraction for UI development.

AR as the future of iOS Development

iPhone X and ARKit enable a revolutionary capability for robust face tracking in augmented reality apps. Using the TrueDepth camera, your app can detect the position, topology, and expression of the user’s face, all with high accuracy and in real time, making it easy to apply live selfie effects or use facial expressions to drive a 3D character.
