Apple working on AR headset, may be ready by 2020

Apple is expected to unveil rOS with its AR glasses, which stands for reality operating system.

Apple has not determined how users would control the AR headset, but is examining various options, including touch panels, voice-activation via Siri and head gestures, the report said.

It has been quite some time since Apple is rumoured to be working on an augmented reality headset.

Lake snow, record cold late this week
Those strong winds will bring wind chills down into the teens during the day Friday and into single digits by early Saturday. Most of the snow looks to be confined to northern part of the state, where accumulations of up to 3 inches could be seen.

"Put simply, we believe AR is going to change the way we use technology forever", Cook said in the company's third-quarter earnings call last week.

The 2020 timeline, however, is considered ambitious for such a complex system and could change, Bloomberg reported. Led by Mike Rockwell, who previously was in charge of engineering at Dolby Labs, the group has already grown to several hundred engineers, sources say. Also mentioned is that Geoff Stahl, a former software manager for games and graphics at Apple is also one of the directors of rOS. The company is also prototyping several applications such as texting to board meetings and more. "I can see it in every business that I know anything about", Cook said in October. In addition to rOS, the headset could run a chip of its own.

The headset is likely to come with support for the AppStore which means users will be allowed to download and install apps like on iOS. The report tells us that in the absence of prototype hardware, engineers are using Vive headsets for testing. Apple is reportedly working on a chip in-house, similar to what is present in the Apple Watch. Apple doesn't plan to sell the gadget but instead aims to use it internally to test AR apps next year.
