One of the biggest updates that should get the attention of architects is <a href="https://developer.apple.com/arkit/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ARKit</a>, Apple's new <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/8401/augmented-reality" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">augmented reality</a> framework. ARKit provides the opportunity to for Apple and 3rd party developers to create AR experiences anew, or to enhance existing applications for iPhone and iPad.</p> <p>Augmented reality is relatively old news, but the fact that this framework is now baked into the most popular mobile device in the world, soon to be married to Apple's latest AR-friendly hardware, is big news. Millions of people around the world will soon have some of the most advanced AR tools in their pockets, regardless if they want it. Businesses and app developers now have the opportunity to show the potential of AR to people without requiring them to purchase expensive new hardware and software.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/188790/morpholio" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Morpholio</a>, a company that we've covered previously on Archinect, is dedicated to bringing this new technology to architects and interior des...</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/150028565/christopher-hawthorne-apple-and-amazon-s-architectural-visions-owe-nothing-to-the-american-city Christopher Hawthorne: Apple and Amazon's architectural visions "owe nothing to the American city" Alexander Walter 2017-09-14T17:58:00-04:00 >2017-09-14T18:00:43-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/xo/xona15oezoi5xbhi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/xo/xona15oezoi5xbhi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/xo/xona15oezoi5xbhi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/xo/xona15oezoi5xbhi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>It has also been remarkable to watch Amazon pursue a dramatically different strategy.
