Snapchat's TrueDepth Lenses for iPhone X Now Live
Apr 6, 2018, 7:17 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Snapchat has made a handful of lenses available specifically for the iPhone X. These lenses, first previewed last year, take advantage of the TrueDepth camera of the iPhone X and its 3D face-mapping capabilities. The result is more accurate and more form-fitting augmented reality masks that appear on users' faces. There are three AR Snapchat lenses to start, a gold eye mask, a Day of the Dead skull, and a Mardi Gras-style mask. Snapchat says the TrueDepth camera allows it to blur the background and more accurately handle ambient light with these lenses. The new lenses will only appear to those using Snapchat on an iPhone X. More are likely to be made available over time. Snapchat is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
Do you ever wish your iPhone had a notification light? Do you use the LED flash to notify you of incoming calls, but wish it weren't blindingly bright?
Is photography your passion? If so, and you're in the market for a new phone, the Apple iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL, and Samsung Galaxy S9+ should be at the top of your list.
The last twelve months have given us some of the most compelling smartphones ever made. New screen shapes, advanced cameras, and waterproof bodies have improved the everyday experience of those willing to fork over lots of cash for high-end handsets.
Lifeproof's Slam case for the iPhone X is a two-piece model that provides drop protection from as high as two meters. It adds a splash of color to your phone in addition to peace of mind.
Smartphones are better than ever at capturing high-quality audio, but nothing beats a dedicated microphone. The Mikme microphone should appeal to videographers, vloggers, musicians, podcasters, and others who want to record the best-possible audio on their iPhone.
