This app requires an iOS device with FaceID (uses your face to unlock the device)! See the full list of devices at the bottom of this description.
SEE IN THE DARK
With the LiDAR & Infrared Night Vision app, you can use the front camera on devices with FaceID, and the front and back cameras on iPhone 12 Pro, iPad Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max in complete darkness! The front-facing camera will use the infrared sensor in the TrueDepth camera. The rear-facing camera will use the new LiDAR sensor. The LiDAR & Infrared Night Vision app turns the world around you into a depth map, where different colors represent distances from your device.
SCARE YOUR FRIENDS
Trigger scare-mode and set your friends up for a huge scream.
For best results, be in complete darkness in a room with space behind you. Explain to your friends how the cool new app shows things around the room you can’t see with the naked eye. Make sure your friend’s face is on the screen, and after 30 seconds, a jump-scare flashes on screen, and captures the terrified face.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Unlike a regular camera, LiDAR and infrared sensors do not need ambient light. They both generate their own light, which you cannot see. Therefore, both sensors will work in complete darkness.
This app will work on devices that don’t have LiDAR. It will use the front TrueDepth camera to provide a depth map of yourself and objects behind you. The rear-facing display will not work without an iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, or iPad Pro (4th Generation).
Works on any iOS device with FaceID/TrueDepth including: iPhone X, iPhone XS, iphone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPad Pro (3rd generation), iPad Pro (4th generation), iPad Pro 2021

Ratings and Reviews
Useful and cool app
This is a pretty useful app but in truly dark conditions the resolution really suffers because the iPhone relies on neural net enhancement of the lidar using the standard camera. In the dark it must fall back to VERY low resolution unrefined depth but when there’s enough light to improve on this then there’s enough light for the standard camera to enhance a low light photo and give you visible information. It is still very cool to see the enhanced depth sensor output in real time.
The good reviews are NOT fake. If you want the rear night vision to work, you need an iPhone 12 Pro or better. This app is really cool and really fun to use! I don’t know if it’s possible, but if it is, it would be great to have further range and greater resolution when in total darkness (for rear camera). A bug I noticed on iPhone 13 Pro Max when using the rear (total darkness): the view will glitch out, and it takes a moment before what’s on screen becomes recognizable. Once these are implemented, this app will be perfect! This is an awesome app, and I’m glad I could support the people who made it. What would also be amazing is if this could be in VR!
I really like the app, but is kind of hard to use on a device with out a back lidar sensor,
It would be cool if we could live screen mirror to another device so as we could see in front of us...it would also be great the when streaming you can turn off the touch screen and make the screen dark on the main device so that you can grip it without taking pictures or videos or having a light from the main device.
The screen mirroring could be done through a separate app that is compatible with old(and new) iPhones.
