It is not a new news that Apple is working on Augmented Reality headsets but they might launch it sooner than we think. If one of Apple’s major supplier Catcher is to be believed, Apple is working hard to get into the AR business by 2019. Sometime back the company has already announced ARKit for Developers which allowed them to develop apps for iPhones and iPad which uses the AR capability to give a better AR experience.
Apple’s long time supplier Catcher’s chairman has confirmed that they are working on a chassis and has been codenamed as T288 and the OS inside has been codenamed as rOS. We don’t have any information about the device as such but one can assume it to be powered by Siri and have gesture controls or maybe touch controls. Another Apple’s partner Quanta who develop AR lenses for companies like Limus has been working on bringing them to the market by 2019 but we aren’t sure if they were taking explicitly about Apple.
Another thing which will be interesting to see is if Apple’s AR devices will need iPhones to work or if they could be used independently as well. We don’t still have all the details on the AR devices but for now we have iPhone 8 and iPhone X which are equipped with AR lenses. Things might get clearer once we will reach closer towards the launch of a new product line from Apple. Until then our readers can head to the comments section and let us know if you are willing to buy AR devices from Apple.
