Snapchat New Lens Studio In Time For The iPhone 12

Snap is launching Lens Studio 3.2, which lets augmented reality creators and developers build LiDAR-powered Lenses for the new iPhone 12 Pro, allowing Lens Creators to build Lenses that leverage LiDAR technology, mapping AR experiences closely to the real world.

The state-of-the-art LiDAR Scanner on iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max enables immersive AR experiences that overlay more seamlessly onto the real world. It lets Snapchat’s camera see a metric scale mesh of the scene, understanding the geometry and meaning of surfaces and objects. This new level of scene understanding allows Lenses to interact realistically with the surrounding world. Thanks to the power of A14 Bionic and ARKit, you can render thousands of AR objects in real-time, letting you create immersive, magical environments for the whole Snapchat community to explore.

“The addition of the LiDAR Scanner to iPhone 12 Pro models enables a new level of creativity for augmented reality,” said Eitan Pilipski, Snap’s SVP of Camera Platform. “We’re excited to collaborate with Apple to bring this sophisticated technology to our Lens Creator community.”

Through a new interactive preview mode in Lens Studio 3.2, developers can create Lenses and preview them in the world, even before the new iPhone 12 Pro drops in stores. Snapchat’s LiDAR-powered Lenses can also be used on Apple’s latest iPad Pro.
