Forget 5G. This Is the Technology Apple Is Really Betting On With the iPhone 12.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) hasn’t yet introduced an augmented reality (AR) device or even promised one, as Facebook has, but it recently took steps to build the most advanced AR ecosystem in the world. Lidar technology built into the iPhone 12 will be a critical advance for AR and is a precursor to a long-rumored augmented reality/virtual reality device sometime in the next few years.
