Augmented Reality Doesn't Work with iPhone 5s

If you don't own an iPhone 5s (or even if you do) you might not know the device isn't compatible with some really cool Augmented Reality (AR) apps. 

Apple's ARKit is limited to Apple's A9, A10, and A11 processors. The iPhone 5s uses the company's A7 chip which means it can't utilize the technology. 

This might not be a huge deal for a lot of, but it's certainly something you'll want to consider as you look to upgrade. 

Giphy recently released GIPHY World: AR GIFs+Stickers. This AR app allows you to bring GIFs into your immediate surroundings and record video footage to send to friends.

IKEA's released an app called IKEA Place and it allows you to visualize furniture in your home.

One of our favorite AR apps thus far is called AR MeasureKit. ARMeasureKit allows you to easily take, you guessed it, measurements.

The future is bright for Augmented Reality and anyone using an iPhone 6s or higher should be excited about what's to come.
