What SIM Card Do I Need For My Phone?
First we had virtual reality (VR), and now we have augmented reality (AR). But what is AR? Unlike VR, which puts you inside a virtual world using a headset, AR works on your phone and lets you see your immediate environment, while overlaying graphics, text and animations. AR is transforming the way you learn, play, work and interact with all that is around you.

You don’t necessarily need to go out and buy an expensive headset in order to get in on the experience. Almost any smartphone can deliver AR experiences and the best smartphones, such as the latest Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phone, take AR to new heights.
The best way to learn and experience the powers of AR is to grab your smartphone and download some AR apps. You may like to try:
In general, you will need an Apple iPhone that is running on iOS 11.0, in order to enjoy AR apps and games. Examples of these include:
The Apple iPhone X does even more with AR by using the TrueDepth camera. Animoji, which are custom animated characters, can be used in the Messages App. Using facial mapping technology, the Animoji mirrors the expressions that you make and follows your voice. You can also make an Animoji sticker to decorate your messages.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 puts AR in the palm of your hand. Samsung gives the experience a little touch of its own uniqueness and innovation:
The Samsung Galaxy S9 also transforms the Bixby into a new augmented reality assistant. When you open the camera, Bixby Vision recognises places, wine, food, shopping items and places. Bixby Voice then overlays useful information based upon what the camera sees.
So, are you ready to start playing in AR? Time to get downloading!
