Apple AR Headset Coming In 2020 With Brand New OS

Apple to Ramp Up Work on Augmented Reality Headset

Microsoft is pushing mixed reality (capable of both AR and VR experiences) pretty hard with the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10, with several hardware partners introducing lower cost mixed reality headsets for use with the OS.

We don't know too many details about the headset, but it sounds like it will be a direct competitor to Microsoft Hololens.

The company has not figured out how users will run the program and adjust the headset. The development timeline is now described as "aggressive" with plans to ship the product in 2020, while having it ready for 2019.

Reality check: In just a few short months, Apple has gone from the AR sidelines to the front of the pack, with a spate of apps that take full advantage of the Apple's new engine. But Tim Cook has thrown cold water on the idea that the technology is anywhere near ready for Apple to ship a product to consumers, saying, "Today I can tell you the technology itself doesn't exist to do that in a quality way".

CNBC reported in August that Apple and Aetna were having talks on how to expand a program that gave free watches to Aetna's employees.

Apple's headset will have its own display and run on a new chip and operating system, according to sources cited by Bloomberg-a change from the current AR and virtual reality (VR) headsets on the market, which use a smartphone to power the devices and act as a screen. Currently, Apple is looking at touch panels, Siri control, and head gestures. He didn't outright deny the rumours though, instead explaining there are technological issues preventing AR going mainstream this decade. It's unclear if this device will support VR in any way, but the report does state that the company is using the HTC Vive for testing and that a device similar to Oculus and Samsung's Gear VR using iPhone components is also being used (though isn't meant to be sold).

"We're already seeing things that will transform the way you work, play, connect and learn", he said in the most recent call. Apple's AR team, under the umbrella code name of "T288", is working on many hardware and software projects, notes Bloomberg. According to Bloomberg, it's based on iOS and will be used to power Apple's upcoming AR headset. It is not the first time when we noticed what Apple thinks, is the ideal form-factor for an AR headset. The company has high hopes for this device, and we may see it revealed sometime in 2019.
