Apple AR headset codenamed ‘T288’ said to run new ‘rOS’ operating system, launch as soon as 2020
With the groundwork now being laid in ARKit for iOS 11, Apple is said to be hard at work on a full-fledged augmented reality headset for launch as soon as 2020, running a new operating system dubbed “rOS,” a new report claims.
Unlike other headsets that require a smartphone or other devices to power them, Bloomberg claims that Apple’s device will have its own display and processor. Apple is said to be pursuing a “very aggressive” timeline with the project, seeking to develop the technology necessary by 2019 in order to hit the market by 2020.
Employees at Apple working on the AR headset are reportedly scattered across the company’s campuses in Cupertino and Sunnyvale, with a project under the code-name of “T288.”
It is said to run a new platform known internally as “rOS,” for “reality operating system.” Like watchOS and tvOS, Apple’s new lightweight platform is said to be based on iOS, which powers the iPhone and iPad.
