AR Patent: A new patent shows how AAPL may use AR in the future to help ride-sharing customers, AppleInsider notes. This patent describes a system that would use AR to help ride-hailing users find their cars. This would allow the person to hold their smartphone up in front of cars, and it will use AR to show them which car is their ride. The system could also potentially be used by the driver to find their passengers.
