Minimum Specifications for 3D Scanning with Dot3D on iOS (iPhones & iPads)

A LiDAR-capable iOS device is required for 3D scanning with Dot3D on iOS. This currently includes the following models:

iPad Pro 2020 (4th generation) - 11" or 12.9"
iPad Pro 2021 (5th generation) - 11" or 12.9"
iPad Pro 2022 (6th generation) - 11" or 12.9"
iPhone 12 Pro
iPhone 12 Pro Max
iPhone 13 Pro
iPhone 13 Pro Max
iPhone 14 Pro
iPhone 14 Pro Max

1. External 3D cameras (i.e. RealSense, DPI) ARE NOT supported on iOS. The iOS platform only supports use of the built-in LiDAR camera.
2. Dot3D may be installed on other iOS models (without LiDAR) for data viewing/editing purposes, but 3D scanning will not be supported.
