TikTok and its AR filters for the iPhone 12 Pro
TikTok announced a new augmented reality effect and it is already available through your application. The problem or inconvenience for many fans of this social network is that not everyone will be able to use it. The reason? Well, it has an easy explanation.
This is not logically the first augmented reality effect launched by TikTok for its platform, but it is the first to have the particularity of making use of the new one LiDAR sensor that Apple introduced this year in the new iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The only devices of the company along with the most recent iPad Pro that make use of this type of sensors.
Thanks to the LiDAR sensor, the most advanced Apple phones are able to analyze the environment around them with greater precision and that allows them create a much more detailed 3D map. Therefore, when applying AR (Augmented Reality) effects, the experience and result is much more satisfactory than if the information captured by a simple camera is used.
To ring in 2021 we released our first AR effect on the new iPhone 12 Pro, using LiDAR technology which allows us to create effects that interact with your environment – visually bridging the digital and physical worlds. We're excited to develop more innovative effects in 2021! pic.twitter.com/6yFD2FfHta

Thus, as you can see in the video shared through Twitter by TikTok, the effect is nothing to write home about, but its execution does make a difference. And if you don't believe it, watch how the ball hangs from the ceiling with the countdown to celebrate the new year, after exploding the confetti sole that is resting on the user's arms.
That is the big difference to those LiDAR sensors together with the iPhone cameras, not just the cameras that any other smartphone on the market would have. And it is true that an effect like this may not be striking, but it could be the beginning of many more that would come to TikTok and that you might want to spice up your publications on the network.
iPhone 12 Pro, the smartphone for the most advanced TikTokers
According to TikTok, During this year 2021 there will be many more effects and filters that will make use of this sensor LiDAR to allow users of the platform to create much richer experiences on a visual level. The problem is that for now only the new iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max incorporate them.
Therefore, the latest Apple phones could become the ideal tool for all those users who make much more intensive use of the network. That is usually the case, although there are certain improvements that manufacturers like Samsung make together with platforms such as Instagram, there are many users who think that for social networks there is nothing better than using an iPhone.
If you are one of them, now you have an additional reason to reaffirm your decision. And if not yet, now what you may have is an extra need with which you are also unable to justify what it would mean to invest in an iPhone to end up uploading videos to TikTok.
