Warby Parker is launching a new tool inside its app for iPhone users: Virtual Try-on — users can test out different frames in different colors without having to go to a retail store or mail away for a test pair.




It also includes a photo-sharing option, in case you'd like to get expert opinion from friends and family, as well as a proprietary placement algorithm that it says can account for the curvature of a real face.




The feature launches Feb. 4 to all users with iPhone X, iPhone XR, or iPhone XS/XS Max.



Warby Parker announced a new shopping tool to make trying on glasses more convenient for iPhone owners: Virtual Try-on.
The tool, which lives inside the glasses-by-mail company's app, is available February 4th. The caveat is that you'll need an iPhone X, iPhone XR, or iPhone XS to take advantage — sorry to anybody rocking an older iPhone.
By taking advantage of the newer iPhones' selfie camera, and Apple's ARkit augmented reality technology, the tool makes it easier for Warby Parker customers to realistically visualize how certain frames, textures, and colors will look on their face by using accurate measurements and a proprietary method it calls “unique placement.”
