‘IScanner’ App Update Can Make Use of iPhone 12 LiDAR Scannning

The iScanner document scanning app received an update recently that lets it make use of the iPhone 12 LiDAR sensor. After that the user can easily convert the resulting calculations in PDF or JPG format. Also with the main functionality of the iScanner app it’s possible to add it in any other document or plan and edit it with OCR tool. For example, interior designers can measure the space of an apartment, windows, doorways or furniture and change or add it in two taps to the existing PDF design-project. The team released a short video on YouTube showing the LiDAR scanning.

This Hardware Hack Gives iPhone Dual-SIM Support

In China, owners of the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and iPhone 12 models enjoy dual-SIM support. This means they can insert two nano-SIMs, even from different carriers, into their phones. This feature is only available in China, and Apple doesn’t provide the configurations anywhere else. In the iPhone 12, of course, you have the possibility of using your physical SIM card along with a second, digital eSIM. YouTuber Hugh Jeffreys , however, had the idea to try swapping the SIM reader and tray in a non-Chinese iPhone for one from China. Surprisingly, the hardware hack works and provides dual-SIM support for non-Chinese iPhones. It’s definitely an advanced-level task, since it requires removing the display from your device. Still, if you want to have support for two physical SIM cards in your iPhone, it definitely seems within reach.
