According to a report from Bloomberg, the upcoming smartphone might be able to provide support for the following upgrades:

“Hundreds of engineers are now devoted to the cause, including some on the iPhone camera team who are working on AR-related features for the iPhone, according to one of the people. One of the features Apple is exploring is the ability to take a picture and then change the depth of the photograph or the depth of specific objects in the picture later; another would isolate an object in the image, such as a person's head, and allow it to be tilted 180 degrees.”

The iPhone 8 has been rumored continuously of being able to provide users with an aesthetic change that no other iPhone has been able to bring. To top of that, the device has also been reported to come with key upgrades that were not a part of the previous iPhone iterations so we will be looking forward to those as well. It is still unclear how the camera of the iPhone 8 will take advantage of AR features, but the company’s rumored keynote scheduled to take place during September could reveal more insight.
