Pokemon GO New AR+ iPhone Feature

If you've got an iPhone 6 or newer model, you'll be able to take advantage of the new 'AR+' feature coming to Pokemon GO "soon". With this upcoming AR+ feature for iPhone users, Pokemon will be scaled to size through the camera, and if you manage to get close enough to them, you'll trigger a special capture bonus.

But, there's also a chance that the Pokemon you're approaching could flee, if you startle them. You'll be able to gauge this with an on screen 'awareness' meter, which will let you know if you're approaching too fast, but even if you fail and startle the Pokemon, there's a chance they could reappear if you simply tap any nearby grass.

We'll keep you posted on all the latest news regarding new features for Pokemon GO, just like the upcoming AR+ feature for iPhone users.
