(CNBC) -- Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone and a new iPad with “3-D AR cameras” next year, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.
The report says the camera can help create a three-dimensional scan of the real world and “allow for more accurate depth perception and placement of virtual objects.”
Google once had a similar technology it called Project Tango. It was also able to scan and create a 3D model of a room, but the project was ultimately shut down.
