How to See What the New Mac Pro Would Look Like on Your Desk
Shortly after unveiling its much-anticipated redesigned Mac Pro on Monday, Apple added a fun augmented reality feature on its website that allows anyone to check out what it would look like if the machine took pride of place on their own desktop.
Simply navigate to the Mac Pro or Pro Display XDR web page on Apple’s website using your iPhone or iPad, and then tap the “See Mac Pro in AR” (or “View in AR”) link to launch the augmented reality tool on your device.
Give it a few seconds to load, and you should see two options at the top of the screen. The “Object” mode lets you use your fingers to zoom and rotate a detailed 3D render of the new Mac Pro or Apple’s accompanying pro-level display on your screen.
Alternately, press the “AR” button to engage your iPhone or iPad’s rear camera, and then point your device at the location where you want to preview the expensive hardware – on your desk, on the floor, or anywhere you like.
