With the latest Apple update, real estate agents and homebuyers will be able to view a home from different locations at the same time.

On Monday, Apple kicked off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), showing new software for devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Mac computers and Apple Watch. One of the biggest updates is Apple’s new iOS 12 software — this time, Apple is focusing on increasing its augmented reality (AR) offerings.

The new ARKit, a tool that lets developers create apps with the technology, will allow everyday objects such as chairs or tables to come up as digital graphics on a user’s screen. The new software will also have multi-user capabilities, allowing several people to view the same space in AR at the same time.
