But LiDAR is a specific name. Reviewers would have mentioned it if it were not actually a LiDAR.

Apple is using LiDAR that is every site is saying. ... moreEvery site calls it "LiDAR" because Apple calls it "LiDAR" like every site calls their lcds "Retina displays" because Apple calls them "Retina displays". "LiDAR" is just a fancy term Apple calls their ToF sensors which are just regular ToF sensors and not proper LiDAR.

System used by cars can detect objects far away.
Ipad cannot, only 7m away.
No Lidar, just direct ToF.

Ultrasound scanner can work as a radar but not radar.
Ships use Sonar to scan underwater and Radar to scan the surface.
Again you're providing a wrong info.

Both uses ultrassound.
Ships use too.
Researchers that scan the ocean's bottom too.

LiDAR employed in self driving cars are simply bigger and more capable.
Kinda like tiny sensors in smartphone vs big and capable sensors in DSLR/Mirrorless.

Try to understand first then comment.

Besides don't try to be smart when you're ignorant. Radar uses radio wave, not ultrasound.
They're different. You're simply not smart enough to notice that.

Everyone else calls it ToF but Apple is trying to characterise it as something else, which I'm not exactly sure is correct if you compare the LiDAR employed in self-driving cars and whatever it is in Apple's products.

ToF can only deal with short distances like Laser.

Anonymous, 19 Sep 2020Sounds dumb calling it "LiDAR" then.No, It doesn't.
Video takes continuous photo doesn't make Video naming dumb.
Lidar is simply a ToF which can measure 3D shape continuously.
It can also work as a radar.

The ToF used for S20 series is made by Samsung.
S10+ has ToF from Sonty

So Apple's so-called "LiDAR" is actually a Sony time-of-flight sensor?

Whelp, it at least doesn't sound as dumb as lidar. :)
