In the race to allure customers with the help of augmented reality applications, Amazon is leveraging Apple’s ARkit and iOS11 platform. By clicking on the AR view button the user can take the 3D image of any item available and place them at different places in their home using their phone's camera. This will help the online buyers to get a clear look how the products will look at their place prior to buying them.

Amazon enables the feature on thousands of its products from furniture to electronic appliances. However, the AR feature is only available for the users with iPhone 6s or later running on iOS11.

At this point of time Amazon android app users don't have any chance to try out the Amazon’s items virtually at their home. Google’s ARcore may help the android app developers to bring the AR featured apps in the future.
