Amazon Game Studios bringing four titles to iOS

The Fire Phone was a flop. Part of the potential allure of the Fire Phone was its four-camera array, which was meant to give a depth to gaming without the need for clumsy headsets.

Long rumored to be ‘in progress’, the iPad Pro (or iPad Air Pro, or whatever else it’s been called) is once again rumored for production.
