All iPhone 13 models to feature LiDAR scanner, Pro models getting 1TB storage option
LiDAR which stands for “light detection and range” debuted on iPad Pro in April 2020 and Apple then stressed that the new sensor will mainly be used for AR, although it also helps the camera focus faster in low light.
Despite all this, Apple has not really announced the LiDAR sensor much, and apart from the AR Measures app, the company is not yet using its full potential. However, this new leak that all four new iPhones have it certainly shows that Apple has serious intentions for AR.
Last but not least, Ives says Apple plans to unveil new 14 “and 16” Macbook Pros at WWDC next week. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has previously also said that Apple plans to unveil new Macbook Pros this summer, and another sweetheart, Jon Prosser, also expects the pair to arrive soon and possibly at WWDC.
