First, in the autumn more iPhones with VCSEL surface emitters in the Face-ID camera will be published. They also support AR applications.
Phase 2 sees a race for the best ARKit apps among developers. According to Munster, there will be another "gold rush" in the area. Apple then publishes its augmented reality glasses in phase 3.
