The September 7 Apple event invite has an augmented reality feature for iPhone and iPad which creates a looping star field. Here's how to activate it.

When on the Apple event webpage, users can click on the Apple logo to enter AR view on iOS and iPadOS devices. On macOS, users can download the file and view the animation in Quick Look.

The logo loops through the animation and can be viewed in 360-degrees in AR. Walk into the AR object to look around within the star field while the animation plays.

Apple has used AR objects within its event invites for a while now. The "Peek Performance" and "California Streaming" events being the most recent examples.

The "Far Out" iPhone 14 event will be held on September 7 at 1pm EST. Expected announcements include the iPhone 14 Pro with powerful new cameras and the Apple Watch Series 8 with a new larger rugged option.
