Apple's Clips App to Offer 360-Degree 'Selfie Scenes' on iPhone X
Sep 12, 2017 3:14 pm PDT by Juli Clover
Apple's iPhone X will enable new features in its standalone Clips app, according to the iPhone X section on Apple's website describing all of the new features found in the device. A mention of the new feature has also been added to the Clips webpage.

When using Clips with an iPhone X, there's a new "Selfie Scenes" feature that will use the TrueDepth front-facing camera on the device to immerse users in a selection of 360-degree animated landscapes.

Selfie Scenes on iPhone X make Clips even more fun, using the TrueDepth camera to immerse you in beautifully animated landscapes, movie sets, and abstract art. Each scene is a full 360° experience, so any way you move iPhone X, the scene moves with it.
Apple says the new Selfie Scenes feature will be coming to Clips in November, which is when the iPhone X will be available.

iPhone X's 3D front-facing camera will also enable new functionality in a range of third-party apps, like Snapchat. On stage, Apple's Craig Federighi showed off new Snapchat filters, which look much more realistic on the iPhone X.

Ironically, Apple failed to get face-to-face at the moment, during a demonstration by Apple's software boss at the annual presentation of new products. A backup test was required


I could be wrong but I didn't view it as Face ID not working properly. It prompted him to enter his passcode to enable Face ID. No different than when you reboot an iPhone and it requires you to enter your passcode before you can start using Touch ID again.

This is actually quite a cool feature but the limited scenes could be a limitation to people using it.


I consider this and the Animoji to be proof-of-concept features - most of us will get tired of them after a bit of fun, but they ultimately open the door for far more amazing and practical applications.

I've been saying for a while that one of the benefits of Face ID is the additional, multi-purpose sensors it requires. There's little you can do with a fingerprint scanner, but that array of sensors at the top of the iPhone X, in conjunction with AR Kit... there's going to be a lot of "wow" going down.

Narcissism is all about you. No. Sorry. It's me. Me. Me! Look. It's the Golden Gate Bridge. But. No. That's not the star. Move over man made wonder. It's me. Me! Me! And now look. I can do it all in 3D. Don't look at me. I'm shy. Hey. What you doing? Look at me! No. Please I'm too modest. Make the background the subject. It is more significant than my sad life will ever compare to ... no. Wait. Take my picture. It's all about me. Me! In 3D. Aren't you jealous of my new phone with the 3D. Yes? Now. Go. Unless you want to take more pictures of me. Thank you.

I'm not a Snapchat user, but I do have to admit that those filter masks were quite impressive. It will be interesting to see the potential applications for this technology going forward.

If you actually watched it was because he just turned the phone on. Face ID is like Touch ID, in that on startup you need to passcode...

I’ve noticed that when photographing pretty much anything these days, rather than it being a full quality rear-camera photo, they’re taking pics of themselves and the item. I don’t understand it and I’m 30. What’s the purpose of that? I understand the point in self portrait photos for sure. Matured photo albums are going to look dreadful in years to come with almost all photos including the photographer at arms length in tens of thousands of photos.

As frivolous as some of these things seem I think they'll be fun. I'm looking forward to this and animojis and all the other cool new things the 3D sensing enable.

You got that right. Th comedian Stewart Lee summarised it in his recent live comedy stand up. In the past people would take photographs of the beauty they had seen. Now it's taking photos of themselves IN FRONT of that beauty.
Hey. But tell you what. It is in 12mp quality, mind. And look at those great filters. And look ... Animoji. Ha ha. Funny face. Moving with my own fizzog. Funny. Thousand pound planned obsolescence device to take photos of yourself that as in the future nobody will take any interest in. "And look. Here's another one of me obscuring Edinburgh Castle. And one of me. Obviously. Getting in the way of Ann Hathaway Cottage ... for someone of your age it's refreshing to see so much maturity and foresight of what is nowadays a very insular, narcissistic and selfish social outlook in life.
Well done! :)
