IPhone X exclusive AR Snapchat lenses makes debut, releasing by today

IPhone X exclusive AR Snapchat lenses makes debut, releasing by todayā€¯

With so much about data privacy issues going on these days, not to mention Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal, it is only fair to ask how much of TrueDepth camera data does Apple share with third-party apps like Snapchat.

Snapchat users and iPhone X owners now have one more reason to be happy.

Apple's TrueDepth technology for the X's selfie camera projects 30,000 infrared dots onto your face. The TrueDepth Camera uses company's own Facial Recognition technology which records your facial expressions and will work accordingly. These lenses will be more tightly sticking to your face around jawline. Bloomberg insiders recently revealed that the new iPhone 11 will come with a new air gesture feature and a curved OLED screen.

Apple's most developed biometric security solution, TrueDepth and Face ID are anticipated to make their way into other product lines in the coming months, with the latest rumors advising iPad Pro is next in line to have an upgrade. There's three of them at launch, and you can try them now. This aids Snapchat Lenses to highlight the photographer and the mask with better clarity.

Sadly, it's impossible for Snapchat to add these high-quality filters to older iPhone models. The 3D items can likewise reflect and respond to encompassing lighting, creating shadows and features that follow the shapes of your face and the environment. Correspondingly, over 180 million global people use Snapchat every day to chat, play, share and capture some pictures, too.

There are only three of them available right now and although the advanced face-mapping is pretty sick - the lenses look like they're actually stuck on your skin - it's by no means a killer new feature that'll convince me, or the droves of users and celebrities who've openly abandoned Snapchat for Instagram, to return. You can go ahead and grab the updated version of the Snapchat application from the official AppStore's page for the iPhone X.

Snapchat application is available for free to download for iPhones and iPads.
