Warby Parker Introduces a Virtual Try Before You Buy

Glasses company, Warby Parker, has a new update for their iPhone app that uses Apple’s Face ID and AR tech to allow customers to try on glasses virtually before buying them. Many apps and websites already allow users to overlay a pair of glasses on to their face, however Warby Parker takes this function a step further by rendering the glasses in a live, 3D preview on a customer face with AR. As this feature relies on Apple’s ARKit and True Depth features, the update is currently only available on the iPhone X, XR and XS.
