    It seems AR is available in-browser on IOS/Safari – but there doesn’t seem to be support for verge (apart from loading it in XR Viewer, which I think will put a lot of customers off).

    Is there any possibility currently, or future roadmap for AR in the verge browser app on IOS devices? (https://swisstomato.ch/en/web-ar/ – these guys seem to handle it on my iPhone 12 straight out of the browser, even with a handy QR code)

    Hi,

    The project you referenced in your post uses the so called USDZ technology which is supported on recent iPhone devices. However, this is just a viewer of custom USD models, there is no interactivity possible yet.

    On the positive side, there is some work done in WebKit library to support WebXR technology:

    Safari is based on WebKit, so the work is in progress :)

    That’s good news! I’m pretty new to AR so all the different platforms confuse me a little – is it possible to enable a USDZ viewer simply based on the 3D scene without interactivity to verge or is it too complex?
