There are plenty of AR furniture apps that have been created over the years to help consumers better visualize how a piece of decor will look in their home, but IKEA and Apple are now teaming up to offer an exacting experience.

Apple recently announced its ARKit, which is a new framework that allows the creation of augmented reality experiences. With this kit, IKEA will be launching that is calls "the first augmented reality app that allows you to make reliable buying decisions."

With this new app, prospective IKEA customers will be able to take photos of their home and precisely place objects within the space. As well as being able to virtually view a range of IKEA furniture through the screen of a digital device, consumers may also be able to purchase decor pieces on the spot via the new app.
