Special Snapchat lenses for iPhone X finally released

Snapchat has launched its special iPhone X Lenses, with the more accurately-placed augmented reality masks taking advantage of Apple's TrueDepth front camera. And now, Snapchat has introduced new TrueDepth AR Lenses for the iPhone X users.

Snapchat first previewed its specialized iPhone X Lenses at Apple's iPhone event in September, where Apple SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi provided a short onstage demonstration showing off the feature's ability to track facial movements. It's unclear if new filters will be added, and how long the existing ones will be available.

By the passing of time, more manufacturers will acquire this technology to produce their future phones and such impressive features will also be made available for them.

Snapchat is one of the first major apps to integrate TrueDepth facial data since iPhone X launched in November. These lenses will be more tightly sticking to your face around jawline. You will see the TrueDepth-enabled Lenses within the Snapchat's carousel on the iPhone X.

Esty Won't Seek Re-election Amid Reports She Mishandled Abuse Claims
Earlier Monday, Esty asked the House Ethics Committee to determine whether she did anything wrong in handling Baker's firing. That's when she hired a new chief of staff and instituted mandatory harassment trainings for her staff, the letter states.

As per Snapchat's officials, they have tested the TrueDepth Camera on their lenses which would offer more accurate and detailed experience with fun way.

According to The Verge, Snapchat's Lenses are created to reflect the surrounding light in a more realistic manner. You can make use of different masks which you can use within the lenses. The masks do a decent job covering up your glasses (if that's what you want), but you're out of luck if you want your glasses on top of them (we tried). And, the mathematical representation of that data (used for unlocking the iPhone X through Face ID) is kept out of developers' reach. Apple's facial recognition system and underlying depth-sensing technology sparked the concern of privacy advocates, who questioned whether third parties should be granted access to such sensitive data.

That means it might not cost you £999 to bag yourself some sweet Snapchat filters going forward.
