iPhone 12 Pro, Apple and LiDAR in the enterprise
Both the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max possess Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanners. Why should it matter to your enterprise?

What is LiDAR? LiDAR systems are capable of measuring how long it takes for light to reflect back from a surface in order to measure the distance travelled and create 3D depth maps of what they see. The technology helps support realistic AR experiences, and also provides a huge boost to photography in low-light.

LiDAR is not a new technology. It relies on tiny lasers that bounce light pulses against objects around them to figure out spatial information based on the journey it takes to send and return that light. Most people first became aware of it when it was used to help Apollo 15 map the moon's surface. (NASA is now developing the technology for Mars missions.)
