Are you already bored with augmented reality (AR) mobile games like Ingress and Pokemon Go? With the recent introduction of Apple's ARKit for iOS 11, which makes developing even more realistic augmented reality experiences easier than ever, developers are racing to release their own AR games for iOS. Here are six of the frontrunners.
An AR, or augmented reality, game uses your device's camera and GPS to overlay a digital animation, image, or object over a real-world camera view.
AR glasses are smart, wearable tech that integrate augmented reality with your own.
To run these AR features, you'll need an iPhone 6S (or later), iPad Pro, or iPad 2017, running iOS 11.
Whereas AR overlays digital images over real-world views in the game, VR, or virtual reality, requires VR glasses or headset to immerse you in the game's digital world.

Bring the figments of your imagination to life with Figment AR, an augmented reality app that enables you to add interactive emoji, objects, effects, and filters to your surroundings. If you're bored with your current location, Figment AR can take you into other dimensions. Feeling lonely in the world of your making?

Whether you're brushing up on your dance moves before your next night out or trying to get the steps down for your next dance recital, Dance Reality is your go-to practice app. The app uses AR to place footprints down in front of you in common patterns that you can then follow by stepping on.
