ARAnchor (or a instance of any anchor subclass) represents a position and orientation in world space, and optionally associates extra information with that point (like a name, or plane or image detection data). Each time ARKit generates an
ARFrame object (describing the current environment as of a specific frame of live camera video), ARKit updates the
anchors associated with the session as of that moment. Because anchor objects are immutable, ARKit must copy them to make changes from one
ARFrame to the next.
If you create your own ARAnchor subclass, you must implement the
init initializer required by this protocol. To ensure that any custom information in your subclass is maintained between successive frames, your implementation should copy any custom properties it declares.
