Big Update Includes Better, More Accurate Positioning of Prey for iOS Devices - Pokemon Go - MMORPG.com

Niantic has announced that a new Pokemon Go update has been deployed that  includes support for Apple's ARKit framework. Using that technology, developers can allow for better, more realistic scaled positioning of Pokemon players are trying to catch. Called AR+, the update will be exclusive to both iPhones and iPads. 

AR+ mode also adds new dynamic gameplay to Pokémon GO encounters that will provide Trainers with more ways to catch Pokémon. Trainers can now get closer to a Pokémon to receive a special capture bonus, but Pokémon are aware of the physical proximity of Trainers, so they must approach carefully as it may flee if a person comes too close too quickly. Getting closer to a Pokémon using AR+ has unique gameplay benefits, including being awarded the new Expert Handler bonus, which provides more XP and Stardust.
