Apple releases ‘For All Mankind: Time Capsule’ AR app
Apple on Thursday released “For All Mankind: Time Capsule,” a new app for the iPad Pro, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, designed to offer an augmented reality experience based on Apple TV+ sci-fi drama For All Mankind, which returns for series 2 on Friday, February 19, 2021, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
The app bridges the gap between the first and second series of the show, allowing users to interact with objects belonging to the astronauts Gordo and Tracy Stevens. Apple touts that every object in the app tells a story from the perspective of Danny Stevens, the teenage son of the two astronauts.
“For All Mankind” explores what would have happened if the global space race had never ended. The series presents an aspirational world where NASA astronauts, engineers and their families find themselves in the center of extraordinary events seen through the prism of an alternate history timeline – a world in which the USSR beats the US to the moon.
Join Danny, teenage son of astronauts Gordo & Tracy Stevens, as he examines interactive keepsakes full of details about life, love, and the world of For All Mankind. Every object tells a story: a simple mixtape unveils how young love first began. A home computer holds the secrets to the teens’ changing lives. And items as ordinary as a newspaper and answering machine shed light on impactful events in the lives of Gordo and Tracy Stevens, revealing more about the alternate world of For All Mankind and what’s coming in season 2.
The “For All Mankind: Time Capsule” app is available on devices with a LiDAR scanner, including iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPad Pro in the US, and will be available in more regions later this month.
