Visitors to the worlds six mega cities — San Francisco, New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo — will soon be able to experience artworks in augmented reality (AR), thanks to an upcoming Apple initiative.

The experiential art walks are among the three sessions Apple recently announced as part of its art-based ‘Today at Apple’ augmented reality experiences, called [AR]T.

The AR artworks live as a visual layer on the cityscape and are experienced via a walk with an iPhone in these major cities.

They include works by some of the world’s premier contemporary artists — Nick Cave, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Cao Fei, John Giorno, Carsten Höller and Pipilotti Rist.

The interactive walks that seek to connect participants to public spaces such as London’s Trafalgar Square, San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Gardens or New York’s Grand Army Plaza in Central Park are co-curated by Apple and US-based New Museum.

Another free session, available at all Apple Stores, will get attendees hands-on with whimsical objects and immersive sounds. “Using Swift Playgrounds, anyone can learn how to create their own AR experiences in this free 90-minute [AR]T Lab,” Apple said in a statement.

The third session spans all Apple stores worldwide.

Recently, the J.P. Morgan report claimed that in 2021, Apple could change how it releases iPhones. The iPhone maker could decide to release phones twice a year, instead of the single release in the fall. Pixabay

Noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that Apple is planning to launch a “completely wireless” iPhone in 2021, suggesting that the iPhone maker is not switching to USB-C, but rather dropping the port entirely.

“Apple will create more differentiation between the highest-end and high-end models. It will benefit the shipment of the highest-end model and iPhone ASP. Among new 2H21 iPhone models, we expect that the highest-end model would cancel the [Lightning] port and provide the completely wireless experience,” Kuo said in a research note, MacRumors reported recently.

Furthermore, the note also mentions the five new phones that Apple will release in the year 2020.

One 6.7-inch high-end iPhone, two 6.1-inch iPhones and one entry-level 5.4-inch iPhone, each of which would also have support for Sub-6GHz and/or mmWave 5G.

Kuo also expects a new iPhone SE to be coming sometime in the first half of 2020. It is expected to have a 4.7-inch display and mimic the size and design of the iPhone 8 with updated internals, and an updated single camera.
