Along with the announcement of iOS 12, the company has unveiled lots of advancements related to augmented reality.

To bring new and easy way to experience AR across the entire iOS ecosystem, Apple has created a new file format in collaboration with Pixar. Named USDZ, this file format can help you share 3D objects as if you’re interacting in the real world.

Cupertino has announced partnerships with leading companies like Adobe, Autodesk, Quixel, etc. Furthermore, native USDZ support is also coming to Adobe Creative Cloud.

With Adobe’s new set of apps, for the first time, developers will be able to get the advantage of “what you see, what you get AR designing.”

Apple showed off a new AR app for measuring objects as well. Called Measure, it automatically detects the dimensions of the pictures and stores them, and does a lot more for you.

ARKit 2 also made an appearance with better face detection, persistence, real-life rendering and shared experiences.
