Is AR Kit poised for a breakthrough?

Is augmented reality really going to be as big as Tim Cook thinks it is? At WWDC last year it wowed the audience and had people in a frenzy. Fast forward a few months and the reception ┬ánoticeably cooled after iOS 11 saw its public release. However, it received a shot in the arm this…
