Augmented Reality — A step closer to Actual Reality
Pokemon Go was indeed a huge kick start for the Augmented Reality to enter the real world and it truly resulted in booming outcomes. Many other companies also niche acclimating AR technology by implementing few out the AR-based solutions or utilizing few of its features in the application to amaze the crowd, ended up with the rapid growth in the Augmented Reality solution market with best of business practices.
Mobile AR could become the primary driver of a $108 billion VR/AR market by 2021 (underperform $94 billion, outperform $122 billion), with AR taking the lion’s share of $83 billion and VR $25 billion. -TechCrunch
Smart filters with a dog nose or glowing stars or flowery tiara or dazzling colours in Snapchat, Hike, Instagram are big players of Augmented Reality implementation. In the list of technology titans, Facebook and Google are also not lacking back in embracing emerging growth and not even Apple.

Introduction to ARKit
Earlier solution development was possible but it was not to an ease as compared to now. The extensive features and advanced functionalities made it very comfortable for iOS developers to develop a game or an app for iPad or iPhone in Augmented Reality Technology.
Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) — prime feature of the ARKit that blends camera sensor data with CoreMotion data by sensing accurate motion in the place, i.e. keeping an eye worldwide.
ARKit can detect XYZ planes and can virtually place the objects of any size (as huge as Gorilla in a small chair or an ant in a huge pool) over it with a sharp detection of lights and even feature of adjustment of effects.
The AR solution only runs on A9 and A10 processor. Optimize ARKit in Metal, SceneKit, and third-party tools like Unity and Unreal Engine to create virtual components.

Futuristic Plans of Augmented Reality
Apple ARkit not only gives a platform to develop iOS specific applications but also supports other third-party Augmented Reality apps with iOS11 enhancement features. Time is not far when in each and every industry we will have possible solutions in AR to leverage customize businesses. Retail, e-commerce, gaming and camera-based apps are rapidly proceeding to adapt it and sooner much more will come forth. Future will embrace virtuality with a closer view of reality with evolution.
By end of 2020, estimated more than 850 million Apple devices will be supporting AR apps, by 2017 the digits already has reached 500+ million.
