Apple working on AR headset, may be ready by 2020

Apple working on AR headset, may be ready by 2020”

That's according to Bloomberg which has gathered together evidence that Apple's headset will boast of its own display, run on a brand-new chipset, and use an OS called rOS. The tech is expected to be ready in 2019, with a product for market in 2020, but the timeline is called "aggressive" and could, of course, be subject to change. Apple isn't the only company working on the technology. However, initial reports suggest that it may look like Google Glass.

As for the headset, Apple is reportedly developing a system-on-a-package chip specifically for this device. Earlier reports from Bloomberg noted that Apple has hired on a number of AR experts, and that the team is being run by former Dolby Labs engineering executive Mike Rockwell. He has talked up the technology on Good Morning America and gives it as nearly much attention during earnings calls as sales growth.

"We are already seeing things that will transform the way you work, play, connect and learn". A mass-usable prototype does not seem to have arrived yet, though; the report says that Apple is using HTC Vive headsets and an in-house design that uses an iPhone screen to test some aspects of the technology. "I can see it in every business that I know anything about", Cook said in October.

Apple is working on a new augmented reality headset that will overlay the digital world on top of the real world. This makes sense, given the existence of macOS, watchOS, and tvOS for each of Apple's products. Geoff Stahl, formerly a software manager for games and graphics at Apple, is one of the directors of the "rOS" software group. The report states that the company has not finalised how users will control the headset and launch apps, but is investigating touch panels, voice-activation via Siri and head gestures. The team are also building out applications, including messaging, virtual meetings, 360 video and navigation, and there are plans to potentially build out an App Store for the hardware. In fact, its engineers are supposedly using Vive and Gear VR headsets paired with an iPhone's screen for internal testing under the code name "T288".
