You want the best iOS VR apps and games? Well, there’s a whole App Store for that, even Apple hasn’t made it’s own iPhone VR headset equivalent to the Google Daydream View or Samsung Gear VR.
Getting yourself into the exciting world of iPhone virtual reality is easy. All you need is anything from the iPhone X all the way to the iPhone SE… basically any iPhone running iOS 11. The necessary motion sensors, processing power and right screen resolution are right inside the phone.
Oh, and you’ll need a headset. But don’t worry, those are relatively cheap.
Google Cardboard headsets can be found for free with some promotions, but ‘Cardboard’ is the system that can be used for top apps from the Apple App Store – you’ll want to download the dedicated Cardboard app for that.
There are multiple headsets that you can buy for showing off the iPhone‘s VR capabilities, with straps to keep it more in place – the Zeiss VR ONE headset is a good place to begin – and all you need to do is start a VR-enabled app, slot the phone in, pop on some headphones (Bluetooth works best) and get into a virtual world.
Each headset has lenses and a mechanism to secure your phone, so that when you move your head in the real world, you can look around in the virtual one.
There’s a vast selection of VR-ready apps on the App Store and we’ve narrowed it down to some of the top apps and games that shouldn’t be missed – and while it’s not on the list, you should certainly try out Sisters, as it’s one of the scariest options out there…
(Update: If you’ve heard about Apple’s new ARKit, it’s the company’s own platform to let developers put virtual objects over the real world images, like hiking trails or relevant information on what you’re looking at.
While it launched alongside iOS 11 you don’t need to worry about it right now, although it looks really cool. We know you’re interested in virtual reality, so keep reading to see the best options.)
