Augmented Reality (ARKit Integration)

Augmented Reality (ARKit Integration)

Let shoppers view 3D versions of your products in their own environment.

Give your customers an incredible augmented reality experience with our ARKit Integration, allowing customers to place an image of your product in their actual environment.

This feature enables you to upload 3D models of your products (.usdz format only) to your store's admin system and, once published, customers browsing your store via iOS 12+ devices will be able to simply touch an AR icon on relevant product pages and view the 3D versions of your products in their own environment. In addition to this, the customer can rotate and zoom the image to get a 360° view of the product.

As the Augmented Reality experience currently needs to locate a flat surface, this feature works best for products that are to be viewed on countertops, desks and floors. It’s worth noting that it will not be effective for products designed for walls or ceilings.

This feature is a great addition if you’re looking to reduce returns and exchanges, build consumer confidence and improve the product viewing experience for hundreds of millions of IOS users.

To see the AR experience in action, you can visit Apple’s Quick Look page and view it on an iPhone, or download the files on desktop to see the 360° view.

Visualsoft will not create .usdz files for you, however, there are online tools and external agencies that can help you. Please note that you will be responsible for any 3rd party costs involved in obtaining .usdz files.

Compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.
