While the launch of the iPhone 12 is still months away, information about the device is already here. Last month saw new leaks that reveal information about a new design for the iPhone 12.

The latest leaks around the product indicate Apple could enhance the iPhone 12’s Augmented Reality capabilities, by equipping these series with a new iPad Pro with LiDAR ( short form for Light Detection and Ranging) sensor. Interestingly, the sensor was first seen on the iPad Pro launched earlier this month, and will now make its way to the new iPhones in 2020.

This information comes courtesy of 9To5Mac which claims Apple is planning to include LiDAR sensors in the iPhone 12 series smartphones. The report claims that the hint of this can be found in the iOS 14 code which contains evidence of a new app, called Gobi, that focusses on AR capabilities using LiDAR sensors.
