So, Apple’s 2020 iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be equipped with a LiDAR sensor. I wonder whether it will be identical to the one found in the 2020 iPad Pro? Regardless, it will see this sensor in the hands of a great many more people, and hopefully will drive a bit more innovation in this space.
I’m sure it won’t take long for the existing 3D scanning apps for the 2020 iPad Pro to make their way onto the iPhone 12 Pro. The apps I’m aware of are:
- LiDAR Scanner 3D (mesh scanning)
- Heges (mesh scanning - same developer as above)
- SiteScape (point cloud scanning)
Perhaps it will be useful to keep updating this thread as new apps become available or the ones above are updated. And of course, to see examples of scans and other info about the sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro as they become available.
