That, however, is just the tip of the iceberg. The rest of it comes in the new but familiar Shortcuts app that is now available in beta form, at least for developers.

Pokemon GO is two years old: have some Pikachu and Pichu

Pokemon GO is two years old: have some Pikachu and Pichu

Niantic Labs has been doing AR games (some might debate the use of “AR” there) for quite some time. But while its Ingress had a cult following, its name never really took off until it partnered with The Pokemon Company to bring out Pokemon GO. And the rest, as they say, is history. It’s almost hard to believe that it has been two years since that fateful turn of events and Pokemon GO is now celebrating its birthday with an abundance of the Pokemon that really started it all: Pikachu.

Apple’s best-selling phone isn’t iPhone X, Galaxy S9 fades

Apple might want to reconsider their next-phase set of iPhones if the rumors are true. Word was that Apple will be releasing three devices, all with iPhone X-like displays. In the weeks and months after the iPhone X was first released, that one phone dominated shipments around the world, according to Strategy Analytics back in Q1, 2018.

Niantic AR will traverse the real 3D world

Today Niantic demonstrated "Niantic Real World Platform" - an Augmented Reality platform that's mightily impressive. This is a little bit different than what's offered by Apple with ARKit, and it's not exactly like what Google has with ARCore. Instead, it's got Pokemon.
