Back when Apple announced the new LiDAR scanner on the back of the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, it marked the first time such a feature was introduced on the iPad before the iPhone. After all, not everyone would want to scan their surroundings and then work with the resulting 3D image on the puny display of their iPhones.

Well, after acquainting the public with what such a longer range scanning camera can do, Apple put its hope into 3rd party LiDAR app developers, placed the hardware in the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max to set them apart from the plebeian 12, and introduced system level 3D-scanning support in iOS 14.

That actually made a huge difference in the usability of the new scanning system, claim the creators of the Canvas room-scanning app. They are now supporting both LiDAR-less iPhones, and the 12 Pro/Max, and say that the equipment makes a huge difference in the quality and precision of the 3D scans. How much of a difference?
