Light Detection and Ranging, more commonly known as LiDAR, is a remote sensing process based on a pulsed laser measuring the time it takes for light to reflect from an object.
This method is known as time-of-flight. It permits the device to generate a depth map, which is more precise than the one obtained from two rear cameras on the iPhone.
Apple first added the LiDAR scanner to the fourth-generation iPad Pro, which was launched in March 2020. It was before adding LiDAR to the iPhone 12 series. The LiDAR sensor lets iPhone users scan surroundings to produce 3D digital versions of real-life objects.
LiDAR, because of its precision and speed, is taking AR to the next level.
