With the release of Apple's developer tool ARKit, a number of innovative augmented reality mobile games and apps have been released, including 'IKEA Place.'

IKEA Place makes it possible to virtually place products from the furniture retailer inside of one's home environment after scanning an area. As such, the app makes it possible to take out the work of measuring one's space to figure out if a desired design will potentially fit in terms of both looks and measurements.

While there are many AR furniture apps that have been released over time, this one offers a comprehensive look at IKEA's product range, including everything from sofas and rugs to lamps. All items placed within the app are 3D and true to scale, making it a useful tool for iPhone users on iOS 11.
