We’ve seen some amazing demos recently where people combine the Mapbox Unity SDK and Apple’s recently announced ARKit APIs to make stunning maps with 3D terrain and buildings that magically hover over objects in the real world. I wanted to break down the steps required to do this and turn this magic into reality.

Note: This project requires an iPhone 6S (or later) running a pre-release of iOS 11, a pre-release version of Xcode 9, and a patched version of Unity (Unity 5.6.1.p1 or later). Some experience with both Unity and iOS development using Xcode is helpful, but not required.

The central shift is support for conditional triggers —a simple example being that if a lighting scene is set to run when someone returns home, it can be limited to running after dark. A cooling scene might run only when someone is home and a certain temperature is hit. This links with another addition, multi-person geofencing, to make HomeKit much more suitable for couples and families. Previously location-based scenes were tied to a single device.

One of the wonderful things about being able to interact with iOS 11 in its pre-release form is being able to interrogate the platform to not only interact with the announced features but to actually hunt out new improvements which haven’t been announced.
