Apple-AR-headset-rumors: Apple may release the headset 2022, glasses, by 2023

rumors have been heard that Apple is working on a kind of augmented-reality headset for years now, and these rumors have started construction of steam Certain builds of iOS 13, are full of allusions, what looks like AR headset, which is either in the form of goggles or a face-mounted display such as the Google-Daydream (or both).

The most credible rumors, we can guess to see what has worked for Apple, within a few months (or at least a couple of years), and so we have compiled these reports in a handy place, so you know what to expect.

Updated 11/11/2019: new rumors about a report in The information. 

Apple plans to release the headset 2022 and glasses until 2023

Most of the rumors about Apple’s augmented reality headset, the reliable analysts such as Ming-Chi Kuo—date on a 2020 release. In a November 11 report from The information, though, claims Apple will release a larger AR headset in 2022, and then let the AR glasses of 2023. Per The Verge, Apple is supposed to start contacting the developers about the design of apps for the headset in 2021.

It is a shame that we have to wait, maybe even longer (if the report is correct), but this feels like a more credible timeline than what we have heard elsewhere. For an Apple, allegedly, this information is communicated to an audience of more than 1,000 Apple employee in the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Campus. For the other, we have not seen many rumors and leaks about the software, what the headsets actually look like, and it is reasonable to assume that these would more likely start from now in the case of-2020.

Apple is big-AR-headset—known internally as N301—is likely to be capable of handling both AR and virtual reality, and looks like a slim version of this year’s Oculus Quest. In line with previous rumors, the headphones have cameras on the outside, which will help it to “read” the user environment.

The information also provides one of the first physical description of the prototype for the Apple-eyewear: you “look like a high-Power sunglasses, house the battery and chips.” Apple is allegedly experimenting with the manufacture of the glasses dark, when they are used for AR as a signal to the people around the user.

Apple, the cooperation with a Valve on an AR-headset

According to a November report from the often unreliable DigiTimes (via MacRumors), Apple is working with Valve to release a headset, to fall in the second half of next year. While incomplete, this would at least fall in line with a report by trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, trusted, who said in October that Apple is working with third-party brands to release a headset, in the year 2020. 

the valve would be. in any case, a valuable partner for Apple, because it was one of the big players in this decade, the revival of virtual reality, when there is a partnership with HTC for the release of the acclaimed HTC Vive In April, released his own headphones called the valve-Index, our sister publication PCWorld – “the new bar for VR headsets.” Valve, the Creator of the popular digital game that Helped showcase of Steam and the developers of popular games such as half-Life 2 and Portal 2. is< span class="Apple-converted-space"> 

The two would also be the first time that the the companies have worked together. Back in the year 2017, Valve and Apple worked together to bring the support for virtual reality to macOS High Sierra, mainly with the support for external graphics cards. In the year 2017, if the rumors about the AR headsets were still new, Bloomberg reported that Apple employees have been with the help of HTC Vive headset for testing.

According to the new report, this rumor project with valve is<, the focus on augmented instead of virtual reality, such as Apple CEO Tim Cook believes that AR can make digital content part of the user around the world will be as popular as the smartphones for the consumers."span class="Apple-converted-space"> 

Keep in mind, though, that DigiTimes, the outlet reported in July that Apple had resolved its AR and VR team and pointed them in other projects. On the basis of the frequency of the AR rumors Drop afterwards, which never happened—or, at least, the reclassifications were not as extensive as reported. 

Apple’s AR-can glasses published are displayed 2020

On October 19, Bloomberg published a report claiming that Apple had “targeted” in 2020, for the release of its AR headset although no details about the event, in addition to received about it. This suggests Apple is on the way with the project, according to Bloomberg, we could see the headset in the year 2020, all the way back in the year 2017.

Well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo was more about the specific timing, as he claimed, we would probably be Apple’s AR glasses at some point in the second quarter of the year 2020, based on a similar prediction in its forecast from March.

Code in iOS 13, and Xcode 11 suggests the existence of an AR-headset

at the beginning of September, MacRumors revealed that a leaked internal build of iOS 13 comes with a “star tester” app that allows a developer to use an iPhone, to see how an app could look like with a handheld and head-mounted Displays for the examination of an augmented-reality headset. In late September, a developer on Twitter called xSnow managed to work star tester.

elsewhere, a readme file in the iOS 13 refers to a “StarBoard” system shell for apps, support for stereo-AR. iOS-13 of the code refers to “starboard” mode, in other spots, with something like “ARStarBoardViewController” and “ARStarBoardSceneManager” explicit reference to augmented reality.

Not long after that, 9to5Mac is Guilherme Rambo posted revealed a tweet that Xcode 11 (Apple’s integrated development environment) had a ARDisplayDevice framework, include references to the headset, in development under the code name franc, happiness and Garta (although Garta seems to be aimed at HoloKit, a third-party AR-box). References to the tax Board were in Xcode as well.

In addition, Steve Troughton-Smith discovered that the frame for the game controllers in iOS 13 key has a profile –  for devices with a stereo-AR-apps, a trackpad, a trigger button, and a home—suggesting Apple may headset a controller for use with AR -.

iPhone is probably the most processing

In his March report (via the Economic Daily News), Ming-Chi Kuo echoed dating-rumors handle to call back to the year 2016, the Apple-designed its AR glasses, as you would land a iPhone accessories, so the iPhone itself, wirelessly, and does much of the processing, positioning and other roles. The glasses themselves would mainly act as a display, so you can easily keep, possibly stylish and less awkward-looking than devices as AR headsets that all the relevant systems in the headset itself (like the Microsoft HoloLens). The earliest Apple watch worked a lot to like in this.

Steve Troughton-Smith lent aur and the last to believe in this rumor in a tweet from September after poking through the grand master for iOS-13.

“the image of The Apple-AR efforts from iOS 13 is very different to what you might expect,” Troughton-Smith said. “It points to the headset is a much more passive-display accessories for the iPhone as a device with OS own. The iPhone seems to do everything; ARKit, the compositor is.”

the operating system for the AR headset is a ‘rOS’

way back in 2017, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple’s AR headset would probably run a custom operating system called “rOS”, which stands for “reality-OS.” At the time, Apple is trying, allegedly, still figuring out how the users actually control the headset, and apps would start.

Apple is experimenting with different types of AR-headsets

The AR glasses, the rumor spotlight commands right now, but rumors have persisted for years that Apple is actually working on a series of AR-or AR/VR) devices. Back in the year 2017, the Financial Times claims that Apple is working on “different types” of headsets. One of these was similar to the Snapchat ‘ s Spectacles in the glasses had a built-in camera, but no screen, so that you would be

In April 2018, CNet published a more exciting rumor claims that Apple are working on a combination of AR/VR headset, code-named T288 that boasted with a resolution of 8K for each eye. In contrast to many other virtual-reality headsets, there are no external sensors need to determine and track. It was an animal, too, as it 60GHz technology for the wireless connection of the headset will use WiGig, a “own box” sporting a 5-nm-custom Apple processor that was more powerful than anything else on the market.

We don’t have the head much more about the T288. In July, DigiTimes published a report claiming that Apple had temporarily ceased, AR/VR headset, and re-assigned to be members of the team to other projects. This message came across some skepticism at the time, and sure enough, more Apple-related augmented reality rumors started to pop up not long, however, suggested that the research was still in progress. Therefore, it is not clear whether there was any truth to DigiTimes’ rumor, but if it is, it is possible that Apple have stopped, on the other headsets and thrown all of his energy behind the glasses instead.
