The only thing that Pro / Pro Max has, not the original iPhone 12 and mini, is “LiDAR”. It is a type of optical sensor used for the purpose of irradiating laser light, measuring the distance to an object, and grasping its position and shape. Pro / Pro Max is used for focusing (autofocus) when taking pictures in dark places, and has the effect of making it harder to get out of focus even when shooting in night mode.

But that’s not the only use for riders. The magnifying glass app in iOS 14.2 adds the ability to detect nearby people, which leverages riders. This transformation may have been wearing a mask because the name is just the name.

Easy to use. Launch the magnifying glass app from the menu that appears when you triple-click the side button, tap the gear-shaped setting button at the bottom left of the screen, and add “human detection” on the screen that appears to the control (green “+”) Tap). When you return to the original screen, a button with a design that keeps people away from each other has been added, so tapping it turns on human detection, and after that, just point the rear camera at the human and iPhone You can measure the distance between and.

The magnifying glass app determines if you are a real person in real time, so the measured distance will always fluctuate. It responds to parts of the body such as the head and arms, but does not respond to 2D information such as magazine facial photographs and TV images. Keep in mind that due to the specifications of the LiDAR sensor installed in the iPhone, it is not possible to measure distances exceeding 5 m as a guide.
