First reported by Bloomberg, Apple will apparently be using Sony’s long-range 3D Camera based on Time of Flight (ToF) technology. This technology, which uses invisible laser pulses to measures the time before they bounce back to build detailed 3D models of objects, has the potential to transform photography, security, and gaming in the 2019 iPhones.
Further, these long-range 3D camera sensors by Sony will apparently also help in mapping rooms and objects for AR and VR experiences. Currently, Apple uses a TrueDepth sensor, which is a short-range 3D technology. However, Sony’s technology could really change the game for the 2019 iPhone users.
